Blackboard Information and Tutorials

Blackboard is an Internet-based software program that the College uses to deliver the majority of its web courses as well as to supplement and enhance on-campus courses. Each course at Owens Community College has a Blackboard site and even if you’re taking an on-campus course, your instructor may ask that you use the Blackboard course site for their course.
