What is Blackboard?
Blackboard is the course management system used by the University of Oregon. You will access your online courses through Blackboard at http://blackboard.uoregon.edu. Blackboard enables you to:
- Access course materials for reading, printing, or downloading
- Participate in discussion boards and live chats
- Receive and submit assignments
- Take quizzes and exams
- Monitor your grades
Instructors will use Blackboard to correspond with you about your online courses. All e-mails sent by your instructor via Blackboard are sent to your UO e-mail account (firstname.lastname@example.org). You should check this account frequently.
Logging in to Blackboard
When logging in to Blackboard, your username is the same as your UO Duck ID part of your UO e-mail address before the @ sign.
If your Duck ID is "johndoe," your UO e-mail address is "email@example.com." Enter "johndoe" as your Blackboard username.
Your password is the same as your Duck ID password. If you forget your Duck ID password, you can reset it here.
