Blackboard, Northeastern’s learning management system (LMS), enhances basic teaching tasks like posting content, grading, and creating assessments. Its intuitive design brings efficiency to day-to-day tasks. It also aggregates a wide range of learning tools, resources, and learning objects into one environment, allowing faculty to take teaching beyond the traditional classroom walls. In addition to facilitating course management, our LMS helps students stay informed and involved, which results in a better educational experience.

Northeastern’s Blackboard is available at or at the myNortheastern Portal under the Services and Links page.

Served from the new Cloud (SaaS) environment, Blackboard is kept up-to-date with the latest features, so that it can evolve to meet the teaching and learning needs of the Northeastern academic community. The Northeastern Blackboard Communities bring together thousands of users that create a dynamic series of programs based on major or department, from student groups to research programs to form this virtual academic ecosystem.
