Use of the Blackboard Learn system allows instructors to electronically post class materials which are then available to students via the internet. Blackboard Learn gives faculty the opportunity to make learning materials available to students 24-hours a day. After class is finished meeting, students can participate in discussion boards, take online quizzes and tests or turn in assignments electronically through Blackboard Learn. Some courses at Valparaiso University are hosted entirely online through Blackboard Learn whereas other traditional on-campus course use Blackboard Learn to supplement the in-class instruction.
