Blackboard is the course management system used at W&M.  As a faculty member, you can use Blackboard to post course materials, syllabi, assignments, readings, links, and facilitate class discussions.  You may even have students take quizzes and surveys within the system.   When students enroll for your class, they will automatically be enrolled in your corresponding Blackboard course. 

Some campus groups and organizations may also use Blackboard to share information with students.
