Blackboard is a Content Management System (CMS) that allows teachers to create online classes with functions like discussion boards, assignment drop boxes, email, lesson building, etc. To use Blackboard you must obtain a license, which is pretty costly. Many universities purchase this program for professors to build online classes. Some school districts use CMS programs for online classes that they offer as well. So really, it is much more than just a classroom webpage.
Hope this helped somewhat! :-)
