Blackboard Learn: What is Blackboard Learn?

Blackboard Learn is the University’s Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). It is used to provide you with flexible access to online learning, information and activities. You will also use it to submit your coursework electronically (where appropriate). Find:

  • Courses which relate to your modules and/or programme of study.
    Every course is different but can contain learning materials, information, videos, quizzes and discussions, as well as allowing you to submit assessments online.
  • General resources to support your learning
    For example, key information from our School or Department, information about study skills or student wellbeing. These are called ‘Organisations’.
