BLACKBOARD LEARN<br />

Blackboard Learn is virtual learning environment and an internet-based learning<br />

to manage and create their course materials, assignments and exams. Blackboard Learn<br />

facilitates student learning and enhances their engagement with the course material. In<br />

addition to that, instructors can easily communicate with their students online and<br />

manage class discussions and collaborative projects using blogs, discussion boards and<br />

forums which are available on Blackboard Learn. <strong>Student</strong>s will be able to access all of<br />

these features any time of the day via any medium with internet connection. Blackboard<br />

is used institutionally to supplement face-to-face courses, and/or to provide any course<br />

content for distance education courses.<br />

You will use your <strong>Student</strong> ID number and your OASIS password to access Blackboard.<br />

Once enrolled, you will see all your courses listed on your Blackboard page.<br />

This box shows all the current announcements about the courses and organizations you<br />

are enrolled in.<br />

My Courses<br />

Blackboard Learn is automatically synchronised with courses that you are registered to<br />

OASIS so you will see a list of your courses on the home page. You will also find “My Courses”<br />

tab on the upper left panel, which allows you to view your courses and the name of the<br />

instructors teaching those courses.<br />

Each course has its own home page. To access this page, you will click on the name of the<br />

course. The course home page features announcements about the course, video recordings<br />

of classes and course content and your assignments.


How to Access Courses<br />

There are several ways to access the courses you are enrolled in.<br />

As explained above, the first way is using the “My Courses” section on the home page.<br />

Here you can see your courses briefly and access your course home page.<br />

The second way is using the “My Courses” tab on the upper panel.


An alternative way is to use the “Global Navigation Menu”. When you click on your name<br />

at the top right corner of the screen, the Global Navigation Menu will appear and from<br />

here, you will be able to see your courses as well. You will also find the link to upload your<br />

profile photo in this menu.


How to submit your assignments on Blackboard Learn<br />

Choose the content that contains the homework assignment on the course page. Your<br />

instructor can add assignments to different areas of your course. For example, your<br />

instructor might have created a menu item called Assignments. Ask your instructor if you<br />

have questions about how your course is organized. Click on the item. Review instructions,<br />

deadline and grading criteria on Upload Assignment page and download the files, if any,<br />

that are provided by your instructor.<br />

Complete your assignment by using one of the following:<br />

- Click on Text Submission and extend the Write Submission box. You can use the<br />

functions in the editor to format the text. You could also use the content editor to attach<br />

file, image, link and multimedia.<br />

- Click on Browse My Computer and select a file to attach. You could click on Do not<br />

Attach if you have uploaded the wrong file. If your assignment is uploaded more than<br />

once, the new file will be saved with a name and a number like history_assignment(1).doc<br />

Optionally, you may add comments by using Add Comments.<br />

Finally, make sure you click on Submit. A message that confirms your assignment has<br />

been sent will be displayed. If you forget to click on Submit, your submission will remain<br />

“in progress” and your instructor will not be able to grade it.
