Blackboard (Bb) is a course management system that Piedmont Virginia Community College (and all VCCS colleges) uses that allows instructors to easily put their course materials such as, the syllabus, handouts and exams on the Internet without needing to know web development. Bb also has an online grade book (Note: this is not integrated with SIS / PeopleSoft). Bb can be used for online, hybrid and face-to-face classes.
In order to log into Bb a user must be an active student, faculty, or staff member of PVCC.
Logon at MyPVCC – http://pv.my.vccs.edu.
All active faculty have course shells on Bb for the current semester. Course shells are created based on course listings in SIS / PeopleSoft. Semester specific courses remain on Bb for three semesters afterwards.
