Blackboard is the University of Bristol’s centrally supported Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). It provides a range of tools for communication, collaboration, and assessment as well as offering an online area to share resources like course notes and reading lists.

How can we help?

Although Blackboard is centrally supported by the central Technology Enhanced Learning Team, we are able to provide additional faculty level support including:

  • Advice and support for academic and administrative staff that take care of unit courses in Undergraduate Medicine and Dentistry programmes.
  • Refresh and update courses for each academic year, mainly involving:
    • Assignment submission
    • Plagiarism prevention via Turnitin
    • Delivery of content such as videos and tutorials
    • Course enrolment

We also support several Postgraduate courses that make use of Blackboard.

More support is available from Education Support Unit and IT Services as well as Blackboard’s own help pages.
