About Blackboard at W&M
William & Mary was an early adopter of the Blackboard Learning Management System. Most W&M faculty members use Blackboard to provide their students easy access to a variety of course materials: syllabi, assignments, reserve readings, and links to authoritative sites on the Internet.
Blackboard supplements personal interaction and facilitates discussion, both inside and outside the physical classroom. Through discussion boards, the virtual classroom, and email, students and faculty use Blackboard to exchange ideas with one another.
Blackboard is also widely used by administrative units to provide a centralized resource for storing and distributing documents, managing external links, and maintaining a discussion board.
