What is Blackboard?
Blackboard is one component of the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) implemented at the University of the Arts London. The VLE provides a set of tools that allows lecturers to create and deliver course content and assessments, and communicate via the internet. Blackboard is a web based resource that provides a platform to support and augment online learning and teaching through the delivery of content, scheduling of activities, communicating with students and monitoring student progress.
Blackboard is an internal University system and access is restricted to members of the University. Staff and students access the system using their usernames and passwords allocated by IT&T, which provides a secure environment for staff and students to work.
