Blackboard is a web-based service that we use at UT Martin to provide course content and course documents to students. Because it is web-based, it is available 24 hrs a day and can be accessed over the internet from anywhere you can get on the internet. It is password-protected by a user name and password, which are provided to all UT Martin faculty and students.
