Course Management System (Blackboard)


Blackboard is a learning management system that provides course web pages for all Princeton courses. The pages allow document sharing, assignments, grading, course-specific communication, and other tools for collaborative work among faculty and students in a course.  Blackboard can also be used to host organization sites.

Organization sites can also be created in Blackboard. They are private Websites for collaboration and sharing documents, information, and ideas. (by default, organization sites are private, though site editors can make some areas private).

Organization sites are available to Faculty, Staff, Departments, Centers, Programs, Student Groups (with faculty/administration sponsors).
While some content may be made public, full access to a site requires login credentials. Not much design flexibility.
