Blackboard is UND's Learning Management System connecting students, faculty and staff both inside and outside of the classroom. It is used for courses, organizations, committees, departments and groups.

Creating Digital Presentations

Digital video can be a highly effective educational tool when integrated into traditional, blended and online courses. Capturing a lecture in the classroom provides students with access to review content outside of class. Lesson demonstrations, student presentations, video feedback and study guides are several ways digital video can be used to promote student engagement. Products available at UND and explored in this section include PowerPoint, VoiceThread and YuJa.

Online Tutoring & Training

UND offers Hoonuit (formerly Atomic Learning) and to students, faculty, and staff to use as a source of online training and video tutorials. Smarthinking is also available as a tutoring service for UND students.
