The University of South Carolina’s Blackboard system is a Learning Management System (LMS) that allows instructors and students to engage online in instructor to student, student to material, and student to student interactions. Blackboard is a flexible LMS that allows instructors to customize the learning experience to their course objectives, materials, and activities.

In Blackboard, instructors may post course content, develop online assessments, facilitate peer to peer interactions, send announcements, communicate with students, and maintain and calculate student grades.

Students will have online access to course materials and assessments through Blackboard, as well as interact with other students via discussion boards, group projects, and communication tools.
