St. Lawrence College is committed to providing students access to essential course materials, resources, student progress/grades and other relevant information through the College's Learning Management System (LMS) to support their learning.

To reinforce our commitment to our students a Blackboard Standards Policy has been developed which outlines the expectations for the use of the College’s LMS to support the teaching and learning process.

To support the implementation of the Blackboard Standards, the Centre for Contemporary Teaching and Learning (CCTL) is committed to providing faculty members with support, training and resources for using Blackboard Learn. This Blackboard Standards Guide orients faculty to the various Blackboard features that will be expected in every course and provides step-by-step instructions on using the features.

The functions and uses of Blackboard have been broken down into two levels. The first level corresponds to the Blackboard Standards. The second level focuses on a variety of assessment and collaboration tools.
