E-Learning at Western

Western currently uses Blackboard 9.1 as its E-Learning course management system. It allows faculty to supplement their on-ground courses with online components, or to use for fully online courses.

Virtual Course Environment

Blackboard is an academic enterprise system that supports online learning. The tools and components built into Blackboard combine to support students, course designers, administrators and instructors with their online instructional activities. With a standard Web browser, students and instructors can login from anywhere in the world to access their class materials and interact with one another.

Blackboard includes a virtual course environment built to support different teaching styles and learning needs. Blackboard is designed to provide the tools for faculty to prepare, deliver, and manage their courses. Institutions of all sizes — even the largest educational systems or consortia — can reliably scale their e-learning programs, create powerful efficiencies enterprise-wide, and support the growing demands of all academic constituents.
