What is Blackboard?
Blackboard is a web-based system that makes it easy for instructors to create course web pages and online activities. The most popular use of Blackboard is making basic course information and documents available on the web. Each Blackboard site has several Content Areas in which course materials can be organized. Instructors can rename or remove these Content areas, as well as create new ones. The default content areas are Course Information, Course Documents, Assignments, and External Links.

What can I do in Blackboard?
What you can do in Blackboard will vary based on how the instructor sets up the site.

How do I login to Blackboard?

  • Go to the Blackboard page -
  • Select Blackboard on the Chesnutt Library homepage.
  • Go to FSU's homepage and select Blackboard under Quick Links.
  • Login is the same as your FSU email account login.

What if have a question or need help?
Not to worry, Blackboard has a great Help Menu.
