Blackboard is the University of Alabama’s Learning Management System (LMS).

With Blackboard, instructors deliver course content such as PDFs, images, and videos; as well as assignments and tests to students which can be graded within Blackboard. Discussion boards, email, and course messages provide a means for conversation between students, and with instructors and TAs.
