Blackboard Learn Support

Research & Instructional Design

Blackboard Learn is Hamilton's learning management system.  Almost every course section at Hamilton will have a corresponding Blackboard course space, which is easily accessible on- or off-campus via My Hamilton.  The following pages contain Hamilton-specific information, solutions to common problems, and links to tutorials produced by other institutions.  The best sources for information on specific features in Blackboard are the Users' Manual (Tools page of any course space, "Blackboard Help for Students") and the Instructors' Manual (Control Panel of any course space, Help section, "Blackboard Help for Instructors").  For further information, please email blackboard@hamilton.edu or call 859-4877.  And please come to our new instruction series, Blackboard Mondays.
