Blackboard serves as one of SDSU’s two learning management systems until it is fully phased out at the conclusion of Spring 2021. Starting Summer 2021, Canvas will serve as SDSU’s sole learning management system. Faculty can post course content, recorded lectures, YouTube videos, discussions, grades, tests and more.
The Blackboard system automatically maintains your course enrollments. Courses are private and accessed only by you and your students.
Features and Benefits
- Conduct student surveys that are read only by you, allowing you to check teaching and learning effectiveness.
- Post and organize grades in one place. Students can see how well they are doing in your class at any time.
- Embed videos, websites, and multimedia within instructional content and contexts.
