Blackboard_logoBlackboard is an on-line software platform that allows student access to the following essential course tools:

  • Syllabi, writing assignments, handouts, current grades and other miscellaneous material for the courses I am teaching this semester.
  • Up-to-date announcements relating to these courses. I suggest that students frequently check their course page(s) for announcements.
  • Online quizzes and other forms of assessments.
  • The means of communicating with your instructor, a classmate, or the whole class via email and/or a discussion board.

In order to access your course page you must first update the password and email address to your Blackboard account. To do this, go to and follow the instructions there very carefully. It is essential that you have access to this page.

If you have difficulties viewing anything on this page, you should contact me.
