Other Courseware Services
The table below represents the University of Pennsylvania's "courseweb" - websites providing course-related information ranging from syllabi and course readings to discussion boards. Many sites require PennKey authentication for access to their materials and tools. Blackboard, currently in use by 9 of Penn's 12 schools, represents the most pervasive platform for course sites, and it accounted for approximately 2044 courses in the Fall 2012 term. Blackboard provides secure and easy-to-use tools for publishing course content to the Web and for facilitating communication among course participants.
