Student Guide to Blackboard

What is Blackboard?

Blackboard is a learning management system used by many college and universities. Blackboard allows instructors to post course materials, like the syllabus, schedule of assignments, assignment guidelines, and helpful videos and links in one location that students in a course can access. Students may take quizzes and tests on Blackboard and may submit writing assignments to Blackboard. The majority of your classes at ICC will use Blackboard, so it is important that you are familiar with how it works. Please see the links below to learn more about using Blackboard.
