Blackboard is the Course Management System in use at SDW. As more digital resources are used with students in the classroom and staff in professional development settings, Blackboard is particularly well suited at organizing that content to make it meaningful and easily accessible for users. The most recent installation of Blackboard supports "Web 2.0" tools, such as wikis, blogs, discussion boards, and more. Blackboard is an incredibly versatile tool that can be used for organizing professional resources, for sharing lesson plans or assessments, for offering self-paced professional development, for communicating key information to an entire staff, or for posting assignments and information for student/parent access, or for running a face-to-face, hybrid, or virtual classroom.
