Blackboard Learning Management System

Blackboard LMS

Blackboard is BW's Learning Management System.  A Blackboard course site is automatically created for each course at BW.   As the instructor, you can customize your course site and determine the level of use.  There are MANY tools and options to choose from that can be used to facilitate engagement with students.  Organize your course, share materials, collect assignments, and use rubrics for online grading.  Blackboard provides you with an easy-to-navigate structure. 

Minimally, faculty are required to post their course syllabus and submit grades via Blackboard, however more extensive use of Blackboard is certainly encouraged and supported. Students indicate a preference for faculty who use Blackboard!


In December 2019, Blackboard will be migrated from BW servers to the new SaaS cloud solution.  Afterwards, we will begin to the transition to the "Ultra Experience" which is Bb's new interface.  More details to come!

One of our newest Blackboard tools is COLLABORATE!  It facilitates an online meeting or classroom environment.  Collaborate is pre-loaded in your Bb courses.  It's easy to get started!  Our Collaborate Quick Start Guide will walk you through the basic steps.  Ask your designer for additional assistance!
