Blackboard will be unavailable every Friday, from 10 p.m–2 a.m. EST.

Blackboard is the online course management system used at the University of Louisville. Each semester, approximately 75% of all courses taught at the university have an active Blackboard presence. Some faculty use Blackboard to supplement classroom instruction, while others create fully online courses. The Delphi Center provides support to faculty members, staff and students that use Blackboard and its associated software tools.
