Blackboard is a web-based learning management system. No special "Blackboard client" software is required, aside from a properly-configured web browser (we strongly recommend Firefox).
When you go to: http://learn.mcad.edu, you are "on Blackboard."
Blackboard requires all faculty and students to enter a login username and password. A complete explanation of the username and password system may be found on the entry page: Enter Blackboard Classroom.
Users must be enrolled in a course in order to access the corresponding Blackboard classroom. There is no guest-access to MCAD Online classrooms, sorry.
