Northeastern’s New Learning Environment

Northeastern’s learning environment leverages open technologies and integrations to include innovative, global and experiential learning platforms. A robust data backbone supports customized, lifelong, and experiential learning, which is the cornerstone of Northeastern’s innovative approach to higher education. Flexible and future-proof, this Northeastern online environment will only evolve with input and partnership of the Northeastern community in support of university goals for teaching and learning tools as we evolve with Northeastern 2025.

Educational Technology: Integrated Tools

As a full-featured learning management system, Blackboard includes modules for creating content, working with assignments, giving tests, facilitating online discussions, as well as grading and course management.

While Blackboard provides many features in these areas, we have integrated purpose-specific tools to support a wide variety of teaching and learning activities. You can read more about these tools in this section of the website and find links to supporting documentation to help you get started.
