Blackboard Account

Blackboard is the official learning management system at UC, a central portal for student and faculty organization and the way to keep on top of all your classes. Instructors use Blackboard to upload their syllabus, lecture notes and other course material (like podcasts, links and videos); post discussion boards; give online exams; post grades and more. Students can download this material online from on campus or at home. All courses taught at the university have a corresponding Blackboard course and all students and instructors are automatically enrolled. It's also a great way to connect with news and events at UC!
