Blackboard Learn for Parents
We are excited to release the parent view feature of Blackboard Learn to parents of students in grades 6 through 12. Blackboard is a web-based learning management system that your child(ren) have been using to access class content, calendars, assignments, and other resources. As a parent/guardian you will be able to view many of these resources available to your child(ren).
Our teachers have been making use of Blackboard as both a classroom instructional tool and as a means to share class information. Teachers have been utilizing many features of Blackboard and posting class content, announcements, and homework assignments. As a parent/guardian, you will be able have view-only access to these same resources. Blackboard also provides numerous opportunities for students to collaborate through discussion boards, wikis, and blogs. These collaborative features are not accessible to parents/guardians to protect student privacy of academic work. The gradebook feature of Blackboard is not accessible to parents/guardians. Please use the Parent Tyler Portal as you have in the past.
What is Blackboard Learn?
Blackboard Learn is a web-based teaching and learning environment which enables teachers to build and manage a Web component for their classes. For students, this means:
- access to course materials such as handouts or copies of classroom presentation, which often can be downloaded for further review
- access to a course calendar and announcements
- opportunities to communicate and collaborate with classmates through tools such as discussion boards, wikis, and blogs
- online assessments (surveys and quizzes where teachers can provide feedback)
