UTSOnline is the web-based online learning and teaching environment used at UTS. It builds on the Blackboard software and can be used in different ways to support students’ learning and staff teaching. The Blackboard software is often referred to as a Learning Management System (LMS) which usually consists of many features bundled together, such as online discussions, journals, blogs, wikis, announcements, email, virtual chat, quiz and survey tools, files and web links.
