Blackboard is a web-based, password-protected course management system used by approximately 12,000 students and 500 faculty in more than
1,200 UMBC courses each semester. At its best, Blackboard allows students and faculty to share documents such as syllabi, presentations,
handouts and notes; communicate with each other through chats, discussion boards and email; and complete online assessments such as
quizzes, surveys and interactive tutorials.
