Online Education at DSU
As part of your on-campus course work, you may have the opportunity to use our web-based learning management system called Blackboard. There are three types of supplemental courses offered using Blackboard:
Although all of your class sessions are conducted in a classroom here on the campus, your professor will use one or more aspects of Blackboard to distribute content or to conduct various learning activities.
Blended learning courses
Instead of always meeting in the classroom, your professor will substitute some of the scheduled class time for online activities (e.g. online discussions, lectures, exams and assignments).
Online distance education courses
For this type of course, you will NEVER meet in a classroom on campus with your professor. Through Blackboard, your professor will provide you with a syllabus, list of required textbooks, lectures and details of course assignments. You will submit your assignments and participate in discussions with both your professor and classmates online through Blackboard.
