Blackboard is UEA's adopted virtual learning environment. The web-based systems allows for the easy creation and management of electronic teaching materials, without the need for extensive technical knowledge.
Blackboard can be used for a wide range of tasks from providing a simple set of lecture notes to hosting a complete online course for distance learners. Course sites can be highly customised and offer a range of tools to support teaching and learning, for example:
- Course handbooks and module outlines
- Lecture notes and handouts
- Discussion boards
- Web links
