Blackboard LMS

(Learning Management System)


BLACKBOARD:
Blackboard

is the name of the corporation
that provides CWU’s technology for online classes (web
based classes).


LEARN:
Learn

is the name of Blackboard’s online learning
application. Accessible over the WWW from anywhere in
the world.
Asynchronous instruction


MOBILE LEARN: Provides access to online classes via
iPads, iPhones, iPods and Droids!


Yes, you can take your online class while riding the bus, laying on the
beach, attending an event … but don’t do it while you’re walking or
driving!


No! Not this Blackboard!

So when your student says “I’m taking a class in Blackboard” …

you’ll know what they mean!
Same as saying “I’m taking an online class”

or “I’m taking a class over the web”.
