Blackboard is the Learning Management System (LMS) for California State University, Dominguez Hills. An LMS is a set of online tools used to digitize, organize and exchange core classroom transactions among students and instructors such as:

  • assignments (both individual and group)
  • course content of all major types (PDFs, Word, PowerPoint, Excel, MP3s, videos, etc.)
  • real time (live) collaboration
  • email
  • discussions (live and asynchronous)
  • wikis
  • blogs
  • journals
  • quizzes and exams
  • publishers' content
  • grades

These tools can be used both for on-campus courses in a hybrid/blended environment as well as in pure distance learning situations.
