University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law

Using Blackboard

Blackboard, the School of Law's course management system, allows instructors to create online collaborative learning environments. Instructors can readily deliver course materials; communicate and collaborate with students via email, discussion boards, blogs, wikis, journals, and online chat; receive papers and other student assignments; and administer online tests and surveys.

All courses taught at the School of Law have a corresponding online course on Blackboard. Student enrollment into a Blackboard course is directly linked to the the student registration system and is updated nightly capturing transactions processed by 12:00 AM.

Documentation on Blackboard basic features is provided on this page. Instructors may also schedule individual training sessions or consultations for assistance with a particular Blackboard course or feature. Please contact:

blackboard @ law.umaryland.edu

Following is a collection of support documentation designed to help instructors and course builders use Blackboard 9.1 SP10 which has a new look and new tools. As more training documentation becomes available, this website will be updated. Internet Explorer version 6 or older will no longer be supported with Blackboard 9.1. View a list of supported Internet Browsers for Blackboard 9.1 SP10, our current version.
We recommend Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox browsers for Blackboard.

If you prefer using a searchable document which you may print we have a
Blackboard User Manual (PDF) online.
