Blackboard Learn is UIC’s learning management system (LMS). It allows for the creation, administration, tracking, and delivery of digital content via course sites. The Chicago Campus of the College of Medicine mainly uses Blackboard as a repository for resources. Your Blackboard course resources may include:

  • Course syllabus
  • Lecture and/or Lab Schedule
  • Contact information for course faculty and administrators
  • Files for presentations given by lecturers
  • Course handouts
  • TLE (teaching and learning exams)
  • Sample USMLE questions
  • Discussion boards


Students and educators are automatically enrolled in courses for which they are registered or teaching. To access Blackboard Learn, students, faculty and staff must use their UIC netID (do not append @uic.edu after the netID). Simply log in to uic.blackboard.com to access this resource.

For more information about Blackboard at UIC including features available to students and instructors, course site creation, faculty assignments and student enrollments, please visit this site.

Faculty are invited to take advantage of resources to assist them with improving their teaching skills. The Faculty Learning Environment pages can point you in the right direction to work one-on-one with an expert educator and to learn how to implement teaching methodologies.
