Getting Started with Blackboard:
Blackboard is a password-protected, web-based course management system - a
"one-stop-location" for nearly all the tools you and your students need to
create an online learning environment. In other words, it's a
virtual classroom used to post course information and/or deliver instruction.
At Chabot, we use Blackboard for fully online courses, hybrid
courses, as well as a an enhancement to on-campus
courses to provide a web-based learning environment for our students. The extent of use
is completely up to the instructor. Some on-campus instructors use Blackboard
simply to post their syllabus and hold discussions, while instructors teaching
fully online courses typically use Blackboard more extensively. Review of
this website and resources is highly-recommended for those instructors who would
like to use Blackboard for their classes.
