Blackboard

Blackboard Learn 9.1 is UNE's Learning Management System (LMS). Blackboard is available to all faculty and staff at UNE for the development of courses and online training programs. This service is funded and hosted by UNE. There are no charge-backs or costs to faculty, staff or their departments.

Blackboard can provide students with quick access to class materials, assignments, course calendars, syllabi and course content as well as offer a host of other tools designed specifically to assist in meeting student learning needs. Students appreciate being able to access class information and content conveniently from any location with access to the Web.

Primarily, these online tools are used to enhance traditional courses and to prepare students in clinical clerkships, rotations, and other field work at UNE. Blackboard can be used to post basic class materials or to design a course that fully prepares students in advance of class meetings to further engage them in their learning. The current version of Blackboard Learn 9.1 is fully capable of supporting web-based online courses.

See the Blackboard Support & Training page for information about using Blackboard.
