Blackboard is MATC’s web-based learning environment. Although Blackboard is used in online courses as the primary means of course delivery, all faculty are required to post a course syllabus to all courses in Blackboard and make their courses are available to students. For face-to-face and blended courses, faculty are encouraged to support student success by posting course announcements, grade feedback, and supplemental materials in their courses in Blackboard.
