Blackboard is the primary virtual learning environment (VLE) used here at the University of South Wales.

Each of your modules and courses has a presence in Blackboard and by effectively using the online area for each of them you will ensure that your students will have access to relevant and timely information, resources and announcements via the web, anytime and anywhere.

This page, and the left-hand menu, will give you a quick overview of what Blackboard is, where everything can be found, and how your modules will be laid out. It also introduces you to some important policies and requirements related to the use of Blackboard such as the Module and Course Minimum Requirements Policies.
