The course delivery system currently used is Blackboard. Students can access assignments, readings, quizzes and tests, and pre-recorded content using this system. Interactive discussion boards are available 24 hours a day for students to engage in scholarly discussions with classmates and instructors. Students can monitor their progress in their courses using an interactive gradebook tool.

During the registration process you will be asked to create a USC NetID account. The USC NetID and password you create is what you will use to access your Blackboard courses. Detailed instructions will be sent out to assist you with accessing your coursework a couple of weeks before classes begin.
