Blackboard, the University’s course management system, hosts over 2,000 class sections taught by more than 500 professors. Faculty use Blackboard to supplement course work with online content and learning activities, as well as host fully online courses.

Login to your Blackboard course to view and update course materials, post and view grades, submit and manage assignments online, collaborate through course email, discussion boards or chat, and much more. Find your Blackboard course(s) through MyUAlbany (Academics tab) or login to Blackboard directly. You can access your Blackboard course using a mobile device.

While Blackboard is available primarily for credit-based coursework, it can also be used to support other educational endeavors of the UAlbany community. Faculty and staff may request a Blackboard site to support non-standard instructional activities that are not associated with a course offered through the University's regular Schedule of Classes.
