Blackboard is a learning management system that allows students and faculty to share and engage with learning materials and to communicate with each other in a virtual learning environment. Blackboard is extremely flexible and offers many different capabilities. Faculty members can use a Blackboard site to simply enhance a course with online handouts and electronic reserves or to deliver a completely online course where the students never meet face-to-face. Thousands of SIUE students use Blackboard every semester with their courses. A popular feature is the online Grade Center, which allows them to keep up to date with their progress in each course.

Important notice: The Blackboard upgrade was completed on 12.20.13. Students, faculty, and staff can once again log into the system. For information about new features and enhancements, visit the upgrades page at:
