Blackboard Learn 9.1 is the online platform for supporting course collaboration, communication and materials across the Philadelphia University community.

Course sites are generated in Blackboard for every course offered by the University. Sites for other purposes can be created upon request.

All students and faculty enrollments are populated into Blackboard courses within 24 hours of their official enrollment via WebAdvisor or by the Registrar's office.

For information on various Blackboard topics please click on one of the Blackboard pages listed on the right.
