Course Management Systems (CMS) allow you to reach students anywhere. Faculty can upload files, share feedback, engage in online discussions, or hold open office hours. Support for CMS is provided via the law library Educational Technology Specialists who act as the law school's course management administrators and primary troubleshooters. The Law Library maintains a list of law school courses that have a website component. If you notice one missing, please email us.
Blackboard Vista is the CMS used at Boston College. It allows you to securely share information with your automatically enrolled students, collect assignments, engage in online discussions, and utilize a variety of video and audio tools. It is also used as the primary delivery method for any classes that are captured with the Echo360 lecture capture system. This is the most widely used CMS option on BCLS giving you the added benefit of student familiarity and usability, as well as local administrative support. Each semester a Blackboard Vista site is created for every law school course and linked with Echo360. If you have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we can setup a consultation to get you up and running with your own site.
Access Blackboard Vista through Agora or directly at cms.bc.edu.
