Blackboard is a comprehensive online course management system used for
Developmental Studies courses at Bainbridge College. Blackboard offers
instructors and teachers a rich learning environment that can support multimedia
course content, links to resources anywhere on the World Wide Web, threaded
discussion boards, live chat, a whiteboard, online exams, and a course calendar.
Blackboard requires a Windows or a Macintosh computer and the software listed
below is recommended. Some courses may have additional software requirements,
which your instructor will inform you of.
Students having difficulty with Blackboard should first make sure they have
the software listed above installed on their computers. Other sources of trouble
for Blackboard users include pop-up blockers, web search toolbars, and spyware.
