This Blackboard Tour is designed to give students important information about how to use Blackboard at Durham Tech.

Blackboard is a system for accessing course materials online. Many (but not all!) instructors at Durham Tech use Blackboard in a variety of ways so each course may look a little different! Instructors use Blackboard to post course information, handouts, assignments, tests, grades, or to have online discussions.

To get a Blackboard account, you must register and pay for a class that uses Blackboard. Your Blackboard account becomes active and ready on the first day of class (and not before!).

Check with your instructor the first day of class to find out if he or she is using Blackboard. If not, then you will not find information about that course on Blackboard.
