Blackboard, Northeastern’s learning management system (LMS), enhances basic teaching tasks like posting content, grading, and creating assessments. Its intuitive design brings efficiency to day-to-day tasks. It also aggregates a wide range of learning tools, resources, and learning objects into one environment, allowing faculty to take teaching beyond the traditional classroom walls. In addition to facilitating course management, our LMS helps students stay informed and involved, which results in a better educational experience.
