What is Blackboard and how do I access it?

The Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) you will use at Staffordshire University is called Blackboard.  If you need to use this as part of your course, your tutor will explain how to get started. Blackboard can be accessed from the University homepage under ‘Quick Links’. Simply log in using your student username and password. 

Blackboard will contain course notes for modules that you may be taking, plus assessments or multiple-choice quizzes that can be done online. It is also a great way to keep in touch with fellow students and your lecturers when not on campus. When you log into Blackboard a list of your course modules appears. Click on a module to view the course notes and other information.
