Blackboard is a learning management system (LMS) that allows for dynamic learning to occur in the online environment. The tools provided by the Blackboard software allow students and faculty to post and share documents and other course content, write via email and posted discussion boards, and even have synchronous, or "real-time" conversations in a virtual classroom.
It must be at least 24 hours since you registered for your course to appear in Blackboard. Only the courses that your instructor has chosen to use in Blackboard will appear in your My Courses list. Contact your instructor if you do not see a course listed that you believe should be available.
