What is WebCT?

WebCT is an online learning management system which provides a virtual learning environment for faculty to deliver classroom instruction to students. This software has been used at Eastern Illinois University since 1999 to supplement traditional classes that meet on-campus, as well as deliver instruction totally online. Based upon the number of course accounts created and survey data reported by faculty, more people at Eastern are using WebCT every year.

Instructors are able to manage their course materials and use helpful resources such as the Gradebook, Calendar, Quiz Tools, and Chat Rooms to communicate with students and share information. WebCT is easy to use and the newest version has made creating and navigating courses even easier.

Blackboard acquired WebCT in 2006, so WebCT is now officially identified as a Blackboard company.
