Many professors in Kogod will use Blackboard, an interactive web-based course management system, in their classes. The Kogod graduate team also maintains a Blackboard site for many of our degree programs that includes useful information about your degree or special events and opportunities specific to your academic interests or goals.
Even if you used Blackboard at your undergraduate institutions, it is helpful to review the information below on how our faculty use it at AU.
You can log in at https://blackboard.american.edu. Do not be alarmed if you do not yet see all your courses – your professors may not upload information until the start of the semester.
You can find information about basic Blackboard features here.
