Learning Management System

BlackBoard

Texas Wesleyan encourages every professor to incorporate the usage of Blackboard into their course(s). A blackboard course is automatically created for every class at Texas Wesleyan University.

Instructors use Blackboard to post and distribute course content like syllabi and handouts, to communicate with students and to assess student learning through quizzes and online assignments. Blackboard also offers online tutorials for all users. 

Blackboard is used to support the following course formats:

  • Web-Assisted Courses: Courses which use instructional technology to enhance the learning environment through posting supplemental course materials, facilitating discussions, and/or extending office hours. In these courses, the technology supplements the course, but does not replace in-person instruction time.

  • Hybrid Courses: Courses which combine significant elements of traditional face-to-face courses with some portions of the course which are fully online. In these courses, the technology is used to replace part of the in-person instruction time.

  • Online Courses: Courses whose primary mode of delivery is the Internet, although other technologies may be used as well. The interaction between the students and the instructor is primarily asynchronous, but may also involve synchronous interactions.

  • Videoconference Courses: Courses whose primary mode of delivery is video conferencing, although other technologies may be used. The interaction between the students and the instructor is primarily synchronous.

If you would like additional help in learning about Blackboard set up an individual consultation with the CETL staff.
