Blackboard is the University's Virtual Learning Environment. The Blackboard modules you see will reflect the various programme, modules and possibly student groups that are attached to your student record. Teaching staff manage the content in Blackboard modules and may upload lecture notes/recordings and course materials. The majority of coursework submissions are made via Blackboard.
