Courses at Cincinnati use Blackboard, an online system that allows instructors to place course syllabi and instructional materials online. It also contains communication tools, such as online discussion boards, where students collaborate, post assignments and get updates from professors. Blackboard also serves as a portal to other web services at Cincinnati.

Once you are officially a student and have registered for courses, you will have a Blackboard account created for you automatically.
