Blackboard Community

What is Blackboard Community?

Blackboard Community joins the resources from three academic support services: the Library, the Learning Centre, and the Centre for Educational and Information Technology (CEIT). Blackboard Community provides one-stop access to online courses and academic resources. Ask your instructor if Blackboard will be used in your course.

Blackboard is Douglas College’s learning management system. To put it another way, it’s our platform for online learning. It offers a set of features and tools, which enables you to engage with course content, submit assignments, participate in discussions, collaborate in groups, watch/listen to media, and much more.
