Faculty and Student Blackboard Support 2014


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 may use Blackboard to support teaching and learning.
