ONLINE LEARNING

Join us on BLACKBOARD – where it all comes together

Blackboard is the main student portal and online course management system used by Concordia University-Portland. Faculty load course content in a confidential and class-specific manner, administer exams, deliver grades, and monitor discussion. For students, Blackboard can be used to submit assignments, read and post to class discussion boards, view materials uploaded by professors, take quizzes, and more. It’s intuitive and easy to use, with support available at every turn.
