Curtin's Online Learning Platform

Blackboard

Blackboard is Curtin's learning management system providing students access to the following:

  • Unit outline
  • Lecture/tutor contact information
  • Learning materials and activities
  • Library resources
    • eReserve
    • LibGuides
  • Interactive tools
  • Assessment tasks
  • Assessment grades

It's important to refer to the student engagement guidelines and the teaching and learning handbook when designing your blended or fully online unit. It's also important to keep in mind the way that other units within the course are designed and structured to ensure a consistent experience for your students.
