Below are two links to Blackboard system manuals in HTML format. These can also be accessed by choosing Course Tools within any Blackboard course site. Please note that these manuals are best used as a reference, rather than as a book that is read from cover to cover. The embedded links enable the reader to navigate quickly through topics and follow the same workflows that appear in the software. If you prefer to print out and read a paper copy of the manual, refer to the table of contents to locate topics that are referenced in the text.


The Blackboard Learning System Brochure provides a high level overview of the Learning System features that enhance the teaching and learning process in three key ways: instruction, communication and assessment.
