Getting to Know Blackboard

Classes are facilitated through Blackboard, a web-based software that integrates course materials with communication tools. This user friendly system is easy to learn and dissipates any student concern regarding technology with its logical navigation and tools. For a brief overview of Blackboard, please review the following screen shots.

Students can directly access Blackboard by going to http://courses.taylor.edu. After logging in, you can access a course by way of the "courses" tab; here you will see class announcements and the left side navigation. Everything about a particular course is stored within these buttons.

To become more familiar with Blackboard, you can login as a guest and browse the site. Unfortunately, as a guest you will not have access to any classes.
