Blackboard Launches CourseSites – A Free, Fully Hosted Online Course System for Instructors

Blackboard Inc. (Nasdaq: BBBB) today announced the launch of CourseSites, a free, fully hosted and supported online course system featuring the Company’s latest teaching and learning technologies. The offering gives individual school, college and higher education instructors an innovative, high quality cloud-based option to host online courses or add a web-based component to traditional ones.



The simple, easy to use system gives educators greater choice and flexibility for online courses in a system with cutting edge features that encourage experimentation. CourseSites is designed to support instructors who may not have access to a learning management system at their institution or school, or who may have access to an older platform system from Blackboard or a competing course management provider. There is no license fee, no hosting fee and no additional setup required for instructors to get started.

CourseSites also features a range of innovative, instructor-focused features including dedicated homepages and URLs for instructors, templates to guide course development, themes to allow instructors to customize the look and feel of their courses and the ability to login using credentials from popular websites like Facebook and Twitter. In addition to being fully hosted and offering live support for users, CourseSites comes with a complement of training resources and course development resources and tools.
