Blackboard Learn

Blackboard Learn is the university supported Learning Management System (LMS). The LMS is the application used to deliver course material (e.g., syllabi, assignments, grades, tests) via the Internet for face-to-face, hybrid, and fully online courses.

Instructional Tools

The same team who supports Blackboard Learn also implements a number of online applications to support instruction. Some are integrated within Learn while others are used to enable the creation of course materials deliverable via Learn. See descriptions below.

Wireless/Wired Network Connection

Kent State maintains a widespread wireless network for all students, faculty, and staff to complete university functions. Wireless coverage is available in all buildings including academic areas and residence halls, and is even available in select outdoor areas such as Risman Plaza and at intervals along the Esplanade.

In addition, Kent State offers a dedicated wireless network in the residence halls for gaming and entertainment devices.

If needed, faculty and staff may request a wired network port activation.
