Blackboard 9.1
Web-based access to courses from all four UTMB schools is provided by the Blackboard
course management system. Blackboard courses can include many web-based course
tools including announcements, blogs, contacts, calendars, discussion boards,
glossaries, journals, messages, tasks, tests, assignments, audio messaging, and wikis,
as well as course content files.
Since Blackboard is web-based, your internet browser must be configured properly to
allow all features to work as designed. Java, Flash, Javascript, and security settings are
often necessary to fully utilize Blackboard courses. Some software installation may also
be necessary, e.g. lockdown browser software to facilitate web-based exams in
Blackboard. Tools like Bacus Virtual Microscopy require properly installed and configured
Java. See the link below for information on browser configuration.
