Blackboard is the learning management system used at the University of Otago. It allows lecturers/tutors to upload lecture notes, reading lists, assessment information and other course-related material to their Blackboard site so that students may access them. It also contains functions that enables students and teachers to interact via class announcements, email, discussion boards or even via real-time chat (the “Virtual Classroom”), and tools used for assessing students, such as on-line tests and assignment submission.

With the launch of the new ITS website in December 2011, any FAQ’s on this site will be moved to the new ITS FAQ Website – this is to ensure that there’s no confusing duplication of information. We’ll be adding links back to the FAQ system progressively over the next few months.
