Blackboard 9.1 Faculty Guide
Introduction to Guides
For those faculty new to Morton College, some of your classes may either be online or have an online component. Blackboard is the system that Morton College utilizes for online teaching.
This research guide is meant to orient faculty to this educational tool by providing both an introduction to the Blackboard learning management system and links to additional resources that explain it in further detail. To the right, you will see a browseable menu that will allow you to explore features of Blackboard by topic and below you will see links to additional resources. If you are just begining to use Blackboard, you may wish to examine each topic in order, as each lesson builds of one another.
