Blackboard is a virtual learning environment (VLE) that enables lecturers and students to share learning materials, communicate and collaborate on-line.

It is web based and can therefore be accessed from any computer with a web browser and internet connection.


"Students can access teaching and learning facilities anytime and anywhere, on the bus or on the train. They can find out if a library book is available, or where the nearest PC is. It gives students complete control over their learning experience."
