The Blackboard Learning SystemTM is the web-based course management system in use at Central Michigan University. Blackboard offers a course website (course shell) for every course offered at CMU. By default these course shells are equipped with tools for material distribution, assignment management, assessment, synchronous and asynchronous communication as well as feedback, and grading. The system updates daily with course enrollment data from SAP, keeping course rosters and instructor course assignments current.
NOTE: Use of Blackboard, except in the case of CMU Online courses, is optional. Not all course sites will be visible to all students in Blackboard. Only those shells made "available" by the course instructor can be accessed by enrolled students.
