Blackboard (Bb Learn)

Blackboard (Bb Learn) is a course management system that provides an integrated set of tools for developing interactive web-based course materials. The system can be used to teach classes entirely online or to augment traditional face-to-face classes. Students can engage in online discussions with other students, take quizzes and tests online, and access course materials and grades. Faculty can post course materials, engage students in discussions, post course grades, give tests and quizzes, and more.
