Blackboard is used to access course content such as syllabi, assignments, video lectures, tutoring etc.
Blackboard has an online portal that allows you to take online and hybrid courses (courses taught using the Internet either completely or partially).
MyUTB is a fully online system that allows you to access it with a username and password and grants you access to your course materials. These materials include anything an instructor would normally hand out, assign or lecture. The only difference is that now you have access to that material 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You can access the materials and submit your own work at any time (within due dates). The system also provides an environment where you can interact with both the instructor and fellow students in a way similar to what you experience in the classroom.
Blackboard offers online tutorial to help you obtain the skills needed to effectively navigate within blackboard. http://myutb.blackboard.com
