Blackboard is a course website creation and management package, or Virtual Learning Environment (VLE)
It allows staff to add an online component to traditional classes. Facilities for creating web-based learning support services are available (student email contact, discussion groups, file uploads, electronic file submission, and web pages for reading lists, course material, announcements, and many other features).
- The Blackboard service in UCC is at http://blackboard.ucc.ie.
- Blackboard is available to all staff and students in UCC. You need a UserID (login name) and password to use it.
- Staff requiring access should contact the Learning Technologies Unit. Your UserID is typically the same as the local-part of your UCC email address (the bit before the @-sign).
Student usernames are set to their UCC Student Number and their password is the same as the Portal@UCC password. Only fully registered students have access to Blackboard.
- Training courses in the use of Blackboard run throughout the year. Further details are available from email@example.com
The Learning Technologies Unit runs two courses in the use of Blackboard: Getting Started with Blackboard and Enrolment & Assessment. If you wish to attend one of the sessions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Advance booking is essential.
