Using Blackboard Effectively
Blackboard is a course management system used campus-wide at Fontbonne University. The system allows faculty to post materials, deliver tests and surveys, hold online discussions, and conduct many other course-related functions. All currently-enrolled students and teaching faculty have access to the Blackboard system.
For specific assistance using Blackboard or to fix problems with your course sites, please contact Amy Peach at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Informational Technology department at Fontbonne provides online tutorials, which are available within the Blackboard system. Additionally, Blackboard has an On Demand Training Center, which includes how-to videos and documentation.
