Blackboard is Stony Brook University's learning management system (LMS), which allows
instructors to supplement face-to-face classes, or launch online classes. Blackboard
includes a variety of features that allow instructors to do anything from uploading
course documents, to posting an announcement, to collecting and grading assignments.
For students, Blackboard offers an easy way to contact instructors, download and access
course documents, and check grades.
