Blackboard is the Learning Management System (LMS) for California State University, Dominguez Hills. An LMS is a set of online tools used to digitize, organize and exchange core classroom transactions among students and instructors such as:
- assignments (both individual and group)
- course content of all major types (PDFs, Word, PowerPoint, Excel, MP3s, videos, etc.)
- real time (live) collaboration
- discussions (live and asynchronous)
- quizzes and exams
- publishers' content
These tools can be used both for on-campus courses in a hybrid/blended environment as well as in pure distance learning situations.
