What is Blackboard?

Blackboard (Bb) is a web-based learning management system, which provides instructors with tools for organizing and designing virtual classroom space. Course shells are created automatically for all courses that are listed on the CUNYfirst Schedule of Classes found on the Registrar's page but it is up to the instructor to actually use Bb and to make Bb course sites available to the students.

How to access Blackboard?

Blackboard is accessed via the CUNY Portal and all users must first register with the CUNY Portal  (detailed Information about the CUNY Portal).
