Blackboard Learn

What is Blackboard Learn?

Blackboard Learn is a course management application designed to enhance teaching and learning. The Blackboard course management e-learning system enables instructors to build and customize course offerings. In addition, students enrolled with Blackboard become engaged in an interactive learning environment.

Accessing Blackboard Learn
Online Training
  • All faculty have been enrolled in an online Blackboard class, “Blackboard Learn Orientation for Faculty.”
In Class Training
  • Blackboard Learn Orientations are presented often during the first weeks of the Fall term to provide faculty who are new to Blackboard the basics of using the application.

  • Check the Scheduler often to enroll or look for various class offerings. Review the Daily Digest for new and upcoming sessions.

All new faculty are automatically set up with a Blackboard Learn account when they get an Astate email account. If you cannot access Blackboard Learn, contact the ITS Help Desk at (870) 972-3933.
