About Online Learning at B-CU
The online learning program at B-CU is an extension of existing academic programs delivered through online learning technologies that balance an anytime, anyplace asynchronous approach with synchronous opportunities for interactive and engaging community-building.
B-CU’s learning management system (LMS), Blackboard, is used in conjunction with numerous software tools such as Respondus, Studymate, Turnitin, and others to provide a seamlessly integrated delivery system for effective teaching and learning in web-based environments.
All online learning software, with the exception of content-specialized software, has been licensed by B-CU through The Center for Information Technology (CIT).
The LMS provides:
- an interface that allows for customized design and look for each course (color schemes, content organization, navigation, and page layout)
- a set of educational tools to facilitate learning, communication, collaboration, and assessment
- a set of administrative tools to assist the instructor in course delivery, design, and continual improvement.
