Blackboard Learn is the University's Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) used to support teaching and learning.

Students use Blackboard Learn to get course announcements, access module learning materials, eSubmit work for marking, and to join online lectures and seminars.

You can access Blackboard Learn by web browser or mobile app. Sign into Blackboard Learn with your University email address and password. If you are already logged into your Office 365 account, you will find that clicking on any Blackboard Learn link will take you directly into it. Take a look at its layout and tools with our tour video.

Guidance for engaging with online learning

To help you get the most from your studies, the University has produced Online Learning Guidance outlining how you are expected to engage with and conduct yourself in an online learning setting.
