What is Blackboard?
Blackboard is a service that helps instructors create Web sites for the courses they teach.
There are many tools within Blackboard that facilitate online communication and the
sharing of course materials.

How to Get Started
Blackboard sites are automatically created for courses listed with the University
Registrar. Instructors and students can access these sites by logging in to using their Onyen.

Students enrolled in courses that use Blackboard will have a customized login page
including links to every course web site for which they are registered.

"Onyen" is the name for UNC's campus-wide identifier that you can use to gain access to

acronym for the "only name you'll ever need." The distinctive name is intended to
prevent confusing it with the myriad other userids that exist across campus. For more
