Blackboard and Digital Learning

On these pages you will find guidance on how to use Blackboard, the University's virtual learning environment, and other digital tools and systems you will use while studying at the University. These systems include Panopto (where you can create and share videos and access your teaching session recordings), Turnitin (when submitting assessments), and BoB (on-demand TV and radio for education).

We hope these guides will give you confidence with the digital technologies available but if you need further support with these systems, please contact your course tutor or the IT Service Centre.
