Overview:Blackboard is an online course delivery system where faculty can post announcements, course syllabi, assignments or other information for your students. Essentially, it is a mobile classroom that is accessible anywhere you have an Internet connection, so you can post assignments, communicate with your students and grade papers even if you are not on campus. Remember that Blackboard is operated by USC Columbia, not USC Upstate. If you cannot find the answer to your question in the support tutorials, you can find the help desk information for USC Columbia below. Update: Blackboard Help and Reminders from Dr. Tom Davis
