Resources for Technology Systems
Blackboard (BB) is a web-based Learning Management System.
Essentially, it is a website that class participants can access any time from any computer with an Internet connection.
Instructors typically use Blackboard to
- Upload course-related materials, including syllabi, profiles, presentations, audio and video files.
- Communicate with students online between class sessions.
- Provide students with online collaborative tools such as discussion boards, blogs, and wikis.
- Collect assignments online, give tests and surveys electronically, and use the Bb’s automated scoring and anti-plagiarism tools.
For more information on Blackboard, watch the tutorials here.
If you have not used Zoom before, you will find everything you need on our Getting started with Zoom page!
You can also download an official Bentley University Zoom Background for extra pizzazz.
All students are provided with a student license for Office 365. This includes 1TB of secure cloud storage in Microsoft’s Office 365 OneDrive. Microsoft Office 365's suite of office applications can be accessed from on-campus and from anywhere you have an internet connection.

Bentley’s proximity to Boston is a great advantage for graduate students. The city is home to more than 250,000 college students who enjoy socializing, learning and meeting others from around the world. Check out some resources about how to get around or to find housing.
