Welcome to Blackboard, Loyola University's online course management system. At Loyola, Blackboard acts as an electronic extension of classroom teaching. Faculty use Blackboard to post course materials online, facilitate discussion between students via electronic message boards, and administer tests and quizzes remotely. An instructor can post as much or as little of her course on Blackboard as she wants, from a simple syllabus and course outline to multiple discussion boards, exams, and an electronic grade center.
You can find Loyola's instance of Blackboard at blackboard.luc.edu on any computer with an Internet connection. Because Blackboard is available to faculty, staff, and students 24 hours a day, coursework may be completed when and where it is most convenient. Students may download course materials or upload assignments to their instructors from home or from the residence hall at any time of day or night.
Based on information in LOCUS, instructor assignments are updated daily. If you run into any problems that you feel are associated with these processes, or if you have other questions, please contact us at email@example.com. To find answers to your questions about getting started with Blackboard, check out our Faculty FAQ.
You are automatically enrolled in your Blackboard courses after you register for classes with LOCUS. To find answers to your questions about logging into Blackboard and downloading your course materials, check out our Student FAQ and Student Blackboard Help Resources.
Please note: Not all instructors use Blackboard to supplement their in-class teaching. If you do not see a course in your Blackboard account, ask your professor if he or she is using Blackboard.
