Course Learning Materials in Blackboard - Learning Online
Blackboard is used to support learning and teaching activities. Blackboard provides access to your course online learning materials from any computer with internet access. Here you will be able to access module learning content for your course, these include lecture recordings using DMU Replay as well as other formats such as MS PowerPoint or MS Word. Modules will include access to your module resource list (or reading list) which highlight readings and resources for your module. Written assignment submissions will usually be online in your Blackboard modules using Turnitin, a software which checks your work for originality. There are online guides available in Blackboard from the 'Student Technologies' tab which explain how to submit your assignments online.
