Blackboard is a learning management system that can support a variety of pedagogical needs. For example, some SIUE faculty use Blackboard to enhance face-to-face courses with online learning materials, such as text and video content, while others use it to hold class discussions, accept and grade assignment submissions, or facilitate an entire course online. Thousands of SIUE students use Blackboard every semester, in their online, face-to-face, and hybrid courses.
If you would like more information on the capabilities of Blackboard or how you might use it to meet your instructional needs, please contact ITS at email@example.com or during normal business hours at 618-650-5500. We are located in LB 0005, in the basement of Lovejoy Library.
Important Change to Course Request Process:
Beginning with Spring 2017 courses, including classes offered during Winter Session, ITS will automatically create a Blackboard shell for every scheduled course listed in CougarNet/Banner. The Blackboard course shells will automatically be created three months prior to the start of the upcoming semester (ex: October for SP17 courses); ITS will notify the campus when the courses have been created. Classes added to Banner after the initial course creation will have a course shell created in Blackboard by the following day. Read more on the new process here.
Please note: The "Request a Course" form below should only be used to request Fall 2016 courses. The form will no longer be used after FA16.
