Blackboard is the course management system used at GWU. Blackboard sites can house course materials (handouts, readings, slides), course syllabi, manuals, group listings, links to session recordings, discussion boards and/or blogs for student/instructor communication, and much more.

Fundamentals of Medicine (Pre-Clinical Phase)

Pre-clinical Medicine courses all have Blackboard sites created and maintained by the Office of Medical Education.   All pre-clinical courses have the same template and navigation elements so that students have a consistent look and feel throughout their pre-clinical curriculum.  Block directors have the flexibility to add elements specific to their courses as necessary.  Contact your course coordinator or the Office of Medical Education to learn more about your course's Blackboard site.

Fundamentals of Clinical Practice and Transition to Advanced Clinical Practice (Clerkships)

Clinical courses and Clerkships also have Blackboard sites available.   Contact your clerkship coordinator for more information on how to access Blackboard. 

Blackboard Collaborate

Blackboard Collaborate is a web-based collaborative learning tool designed to work in tandem with the Blackboard system, featuring options for meeting, class participation, and virtual hosted seminars. For more information, please visit the GWU IT Blackboard Collaborate Page.
