Training & Support for Online Classes
If you’re reasonably comfortable online, you should have no trouble with Blackboard. It’s the class management system that you’ll use to watch video lectures, submit assignments, take tests, and more.
After you register for your class, it’s a good idea to test your Blackboard access. To do so, go to the Blackboard log in page. You’ll see directions about how to log in.
While you’re logged into Blackboard, you may want to click on the My Courses panel and select the Online Prep Site. It helps you ensure that you’re ready when the semester begins.
Lots of information about using Blackboard is available online:

What Students Say About Online Classes
“My teacher posted his lectures and activities on Blackboard weekly, so I was able to complete all required class work and tests at my own leisure. Most importantly, I learned a ton in the course, and my excellent instructor was available by email around the clock.”—Wendy L., 48
