Blackboard Learn

Blackboard Learn, also known simply as Blackboard, is a widely used learning management system for educational institutions and businesses. The platform offers tools for course management, assessment, collaboration and communication. It enables instructors to create and manage course content online while providing a virtual classroom environment where students can interact with each other and the instructor. Blackboard's features include discussion boards, blogs, wikis, multimedia support for files and an interactive gradebook. The software supports integration with other systems through Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) standards allowing access to third-party apps within the LMS platform itself or linking out to external resources directly from the course interface.
