Our Blackboard Template

To get started, you will also find our Using Blackboard | Basics pages useful.

At the request of the University’s Learning Development Group (LDG) and in response to students’ views highlighted in the Student Expectation Project and National Student Survey, a new University template was introduced for Blackboard during the academic year of 2008-09. This was updated in 2015 in line with the VLE Minimum Requirements Policy.

You will be able to tailor your module(s) to your own requirements using this core template as the foundation — you will will still have the flexibility to add more buttons if required.
