Faculty Blackboard Support

Faculty Blackboard support

Blackboard is Georgian College’s online Learning Management System (LMS). It can be used to communicate with students, post links to important information, post course content such as lecture materials, and facilitate student collaboration by means of blogs, discussion boards and wikis. There is also a grade centre in which marks can be entered and made visible to students at any point in the semester. If you are new to Blackboard, try our self-paced online module found below.

Blackboard Ultra Base Navigation is here!

In January 2022, Blackboard Ultra Base Navigation (UBN) was enabled at Georgian. This update provides a fresh new layout that is designed to improve the teaching and learning experience for the entire Georgian community.

Blackboard Ultra Base Navigation

Why did we make this change?

Here are three reasons:

  1. Intuitive design: Blackboard Ultra is intuitive and fluid in design, making it easy to find and access what you’re looking for.
  2. Improved student experience: This new design also means a better experience for students, simplifying how they find and access course content.
  3. Activity stream: Quickly see assignments that need grading and discussions that are happening in your courses. The activity stream brings all these updates together on one screen.

If you have any questions about this announcement, please email your friendly Faculty Blackboard Support Team.
