What is Interact2 - or Blackboard as it is sometimes known - exactly? Find out more about our online learning environment here.

Your course and subject level information lives on Interact2. Each subject may be structured differently, but for most subjects you’ll be able to use Interact2 to:

  • listen or watch lectures
  • view recordings of past lectures
  • attend tutorials
  • connect with other students
  • get a list of readings for the week.
  • submit your assessments
  • check your marks

You can access your subject sites on the Student Portal homepage. Subject sites are available 14 days before your session starts so that you can explore your subject content before you start studying.

Watch the online orientation workshop to get started. Blackboard also provide student support videos and documentation.
