E-learning services at UBT
Blackboard Learn is an application for online teaching, learning, community building, and knowledge sharing.
You can use any theory or model for teaching your online course because Blackboard Learn is open, flexible, and centered on student achievement.
At Blackboard, we nurture learners and support those who make education possible, from K-12 and higher education to adult learning and workplace training.
As you get started with Blackboard Learn, you'll find that teaching online shares many similarities with teaching in the face-to-face (f2f) classroom.
Turnitin is the known leading plagiarism software. It is integrated with Moodle, so both instructors and students use the Turnitin Tool when they log in onto Moodle. Instructors can use Turnitin to detect plagiarized papers and view the similarities percentage to outside content in the web or other published resources. It can help detect previously submitted work by previous students at the university or in any other universities. Students also can use Turnitin to submit their assignments and view the similarity report to learn what mistakes they have done.

Smart Classroom software
UBT’s campuses install smart software in each classroom and on each instructor computer. The smart software includes a smart notebook and smart board software and such. It allows the teacher to customize and design his/her own lectures to be interactive and animated and present it inside the classroom using the smart touch boards. It transforms a rigid text lecture into a creative, innovative and interactive experience inside the classroom. The students enjoy smart-board lectures and they get to experience the board when presenting their projects themselves or solve exercises on the board.
