Blackboard is a Web-based course-management system designed to allow students and faculty to participate in classes delivered online or use online materials and activities to complement face-to-face teaching. Blackboard enables instructors to provide students with course materials, discussion boards, virtual chat, online quizzes, an academic resource center, and more. The degree to which Blackboard is used in a course varies. For example, instructors may supplement an on-campus class by putting their syllabus and handouts on their course sites. In contrast, other courses may be conducted entirely through Blackboard, without any on-campus sessions. If you're enrolled in a course that uses Blackboard, be sure to find out how Blackboard will be used in that course.
Long Island University's My LIU portal provides students with convenient access to information about their records including financial aid, billing, grades, class schedule, e-mail account and more.
