Blackboard is a web-based course management system featuring tools for: posting announcements, faculty and student profiles, course syllabi, instructional materials, assignments, and external Web links; developing and delivering exams, quizzes and surveys, and managing grades; computer conferencing, e-mail, real-time chat, and transferring assignments between you and your students.

Blackboard can be used for asynchronous courses or for developing supplementary materials for courses taught over ITV, compressed video or traditional classroom instruction.
