The UVI Blackboard Course Management System provides options for managing courses for faculty (i.e. gradebook, online testing, plagiarism prevention tools) and making course materials available to students via the Internet. Blackboard facilitates student communication (i.e. email, discussion boards, viewing of grades) and allows the digital submission of assignments.
If the instructor is using Blackboard, students can find information about courses, such as announcements, course documents, syllabi, presentations, grades or links to other websites. Students can also submit assignments, blogs, tests, exams, journals, etc. Other communication tools are available including email, discussion boards, live chat,, wikis and podcasts.
Blackboard accounts are created for faculty when email and domain accounts are set up by Human Resources. You will log in to BlackBoard via myCampus. The system will list all courses for which you have access. Students will be automatically enrolled in each course when they register via banweb online registration services or the Registrar office. Each course must be made available to provide students with access to the respective course.
