    The system allows faculty to post course materials, deliver tests and surveys, hold online discussions, and facilitate many other course-related functions. Some additional features include Course Announcements, Online Quizzes and Surveys, and Course Study Groups.

    All currently-enrolled students and teaching faculty have access to the Blackboard system.
