The course management system, Blackboard, is available to all faculty members. It is a web-based utility that allows faculty the option of offering course materials (syllabi, announcements, handouts, etc.) and communication with students via the Internet in a secure environment, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Faculty may sign on to the system at http://blackboard.missouristate.edu. For more information contact Mike McManus, Academic Affairs, at 836-4518.
