BeachBoard is the University's e-learning environment. Instructors who choose to use BeachBoard often use it to post their course syllabi, lecture materials, assignments, discussions, and even grades.
BeachBoard can also be used in Hybrid Courses, a combination of a traditional class and online class, BeachBoard can provide online quizzes, a virtual chat room and discussion boards.
In an Online Course, BeachBoard will serve as the method for all of the course's faculty-student interactions.
Students, faculty and staff also have the ability to manage their organizations on BeachBoard. These organizations provide the same collaborative features as a course on BeachBoard and may include e-mail lists, posting of announcements, a virtual chat room, and discussion boards.
