Blackboard for UTEP Faculty

QUICK LINKS:   GETTING STARTED  |  TOOLS FOR BLACKBOARD  |  SUPPORT LINKSBLACKBOARD CENTRAL



Blackboard is an online learning environment where instructors and students interact. Courses are available 4 - 6 weeks before classes begin. Only classes for which you are the "faculty of record" will be listed. If your classes are not listed by that time, visit the Technology Support Help Desk and request assistance.


Create an online space for your class by requesting a Course Shell from the Technology Support. Once a shell has been created, you can access your Blackboard course through the my.utep.edu portal.


• Send messages and emails to your students.
• Upload assignments and documents for your students.
• Create online discussion groups, quizzes, and tests.
• Create a custom Course Shell for your class.
