Blackboard Learn

Blackboard Learn is our secure web-based Learning Management System that is used for online and on-location courses.


Features and Functions:

Blackboard provides students and professors with an integrated suite of electronic resources to enhance the learning experience. Blackboard allows instructors to tightly integrate their courses with rich media and to reach students not only through the browser but also through their mobile devices. Students can use Blackboard to digitally submit assignments and tests, which aids in reducing our environmental footprint.


Availability:

Blackboard is available to all Doane students, faculty, and select staff members.

Blackboard can be accessed at https://bb2.doane.edu. You can also access Blackboard using the quick link from either the Current Students or Faculty/Staff intranet pages. For mobile users interested in a more mobile-friendly experience, there is a Blackboard app that can be purchased for a small fee from vendor application stores (e.g. Apple App Store).

Note: Your username and password is the common Doane user ID and password you use for all systems (e.g. Gmail, WebAdvisor, etc.).
