Blackboard is an online course management system used by many Madison Area Technical College instructors. It usually contains the class syllabus, required reading materials, instructor contact information, assignment schedule, and other useful information. It may also include discussion threads, assignments, quizzes, course materials, links to library resources, and other class activities.
Course Shells are automatically created for every course each semester. Students are loaded into Blackboard course shells from the registration system ('PeopleSoft' AKA 'StudentCenter').
These web pages (found in menu at left) aim to provide support to all Madison College employees who are using Blackboard.
