Blackboard is the University’s Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) providing you with access to your learning materials, resources and services to support your studies.

It is the main learning platform for all students, with every course providing core learning information through dedicated sites for each module. The VLE also provides a range of additional tools and services to enhance engagement, allowing for digital activities as well as access to resources and communication tools.

  • The Institution Page

*NB: Your notification email will be sent directly to your CCCU email account's main inbox as standard. As the notifications cannot be disabled entirely, you can create a rule to send it to a separate folder that you can then check on in your own time and not have it get in the way of other pressing messages. Download and follow the guide in the right-hand section of this page to set up a rule in Outlook from our IT Trainers.
