Blackboard is a Web-based course-management system designed to allow students and faculty to participate in classes delivered online or use online materials and activities to complement face-to-face teaching. Blackboard enables instructors to provide students with course materials, discussion boards, online quizzes, and more. The degree to which Blackboard is used in a course varies.

For example, instructors may supplement an on-campus class by putting their syllabus and handouts on their course sites. In contrast, other courses may be conducted entirely through Blackboard, without any on-campus sessions. If you are enrolled in a course that uses Blackboard, your user name and password is the same as you AUM email account.

For faculty and students, Blackboard provides:

  • Course calendar and announcements
  • Asynchronous communication
  • Synchronous communication
  • Content creation and distribution
  • Time release of content
  • Course navigation panel

To access Blackboard, please login to my.aum.edu and then click on the blackboard link on the left side of the main dashboard.


If you have questions about Blackboard, please contact the ITS Help Desk at 334-244-3500.
