Frequently Asked Questions
How Does Blackboard Work?
Blackboard integrates with CampusVue to provide a space for each course taught each semester. Student enrollments and faculty assignments are handled automatically by the system. A fully functional course space, called a “shell,” provides tools for displaying content, interacting with students, and assessing students’ work. Blackboard supports various media types for creating engaging content, such as the following:
- Audio and video, for example YouTube videos and Echo360 Lecture Capture
- Discussion and journal tools for interacting with students
- A powerful, interactive grade center and assessment tools enable instructors to record and asses students’ work in a variety of ways
