Blackboard is the official Learning Management System for NDSU that connects students, faculty and staff both inside and outside of the class room.


Many instructors use Blackboard to:

  • Share course syllabi and materials 
  • Distribute class assignments 
  • Assign tests 
  • Post grades and feedback 
  • Facilitate student collaboration and more
Most users will use their NDSU.Identifier username (jane.doe) and password. Contact the IT Help Desk for assistance.
