Blackboard Tutorial

Blackboard is the learning management system (LMS) we use to deliver our online courses at MSU. As a student, it will be helpful for you to be familiar with its look and feel and know about its features before your classes start. We have provided access to a Blackboard tutorial course for this purpose. Use the instructions below to login to the course.

At this time, the Blackboard Tutorial is only open to current NDUS students.
