Blackboard Learn is an application for online teaching, learning, community building, and knowledge sharing (termed "LMS", or Learning Management System). Hosting a large variety of tools and features, Blackboard Learn is an invaluable tool for teachers and students alike. Whether in a fully online class or used alongside a traditional classroom, be sure to take advantage of: assignments, tests, discussion boards, embedded video options, the Grade Center, course reports, third-party integrations (such as Panopto or Turnitin), and more!
Since COVID-19, usage of Bb Learn has grown significantly, which is great! However, we have exceeded our allotted storage limit by over threefold and are now subject to additional storage expenses. Bb Learn is paid for by Student Technology Fees, so it is important to keep our courses as clean and efficient as possible. Therefore, a 'Course Quota', set to a 1 GB limit, was implemented on 4/23/2021, starting with the creation of Fall 2021 Bb Learn courses. Please keep this in mind as you prepare to copy Bb Learn courses from prior semesters into your Fall 2021 courses.

"Blackboard is the cornerstone of my course. I have become so reliant on its features that everything for my course is embedded within Blackboard. I can build my course on Blackboard where students receive a detailed list of weekly activities, assignments, and tests. If I want to alter a few assignments, I can copy for future courses. Once the course has been copied, I can make changes to the items of my choice and keep everything else without having to start all over. Blackboard is a great tool and overall I am pleased with this application! " - Irenea Walker, UNI Faculty Member
