Blackboard is Bowdoin’s web-based course management tool.  It provides faculty and students with tools to help them organize and share course-related materials, including syllabi, discussion boards, blogs, and photo rosters.  Additionally, it has test and survey tools that allow faculty to save paper by making quizzes and exams available online.  Then Blackboard’s Grade Center grades them.
