What is Blackboard?

Blackboard is the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) at NUI Galway.

It allows you to:

  • share learning materials and lecture notes with your students
  • communicate with your tutors and students, using email, discussion forums and various other module tools
  • create assignments, quizzes and surveys
  • enter and return marks for a student on a module
