Blackboard

Blackboard Learn is the Learning Management System (LMS) technology supported by the University of Houston.  This Blackboard allows the instructor to post course contents as well as keep student informed, involved, and collaborating with other students online.  Students can access the course content anytime-anywhere. 

How can instructors integrate Blackboard Learn with their courses?

Traditional Course: if you are teaching a face-to-face course and would like to have your syllabus, lecture notes, handouts, or group discussions online, you will use Blackboard as a supplement to your class.

Hybrid Course: if you are teaching a hybrid course you will want to put much of your material online since 50% or more of your content must be delivered online.  You may want to meet with an instructional designer to develop your course Instructional Plan.  You will need to have approval from your college and Distance Education to deliver your hybrid online.

Online Course: Teaching a totally online course requires you to plan and develop your material from a different perspective than other modes of instruction. You may want to meet with an instructional designer to develop your course Instructional Plan. You will need to have approval from your college and Distance Education to deliver your course online.
