The Blackboard Learning System helps professors and students enhance the classroom experience by enabling continued class collaboration, facilitating feedback from peers and instructors, and allowing for unlimited access to course documents, reading assignments, and other supplementary materials.
Blackboard is a powerful learning environment that accommodates the needs of students and professors alike by supporting a wide variety of electronic media, including: PowerPoint handouts, Microsoft Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, Video and audio clips in my popular formats, PDF files, and more.
Testing and Assessment
Respondus is a tool for creating and managing exams that can be printed to paper or published directly to Blackboard.
Respondus lockdown browser (LDB) is a tool that locks down the testing environment within Blackboard. Students are
locked into the assessment and are unable to print, copy, go to another URL or access other applications. The LDB is fully
integrated with Blackboard.
Electronic portfolios are a way for students and/or faculty to showcase their work and experience for educational and career pursuits.
