What is Blackboard?

Blackboard is a learning management system, which contains a range of tools to support teaching and learning. We’ve been running Blackboard at Otago since about 2000.  Some features are:

  • Uploading/managing files
  • Tests, Surveys and Grades
  • Discussions
  • Simple Blogs, Wikis and Journals
  • Anti-plagiarism checking.
