Virginia Commonwealth University uses Blackboard to facilitate online instructional interactions between students and professors. The faculty member who would like to create an online course or supplement a traditional course may wish to use Blackboard.

The Blackboard Learning Management System can be used to post announcements, lecture notes, assignments, and a syllabus. Communication tools include discussion forums, online synchronous chat, audio recordings, email, and interactive online collaborations. The assessment features include online quizzing, surveys, Grade Center management, and grade posting (in Blackboard).

Blackboard accounts for course creation are issued to all faculty at VCU.
