BLACKBOARD LEARNING MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
The Department of Rehabilitation’s (DOR) Learning Management System (LMS), Blackboard, is now available for External Partner use, including committee members, Local Education Agencies (LEAs), Community Resource Partners (CRPs), vendors, volunteers, and more.
Blackboard LMS and Collaborate work best with the following browsers:
- Google Chrome
- Microsoft Edge
What does this mean for DOR’s External Partners? The LMS represents a giant leap forward, offering:
A virtual one-stop shop where you can enroll in, complete and download completion certificates for all mandatory trainings, such as Ethics and Sexual Harassment Prevention training.
A tool for tracking training records online.
A web-conferencing tool, Blackboard Collaborate, allowing users to share documents/screens from any computer, laptop or mobile device.
Below you will find videos and quick reference guides of how to use the system.
