The CNYRIC's Blackboard Learn System allows educators to create Virtual Learning Environments that extend traditional classroom work and allow teachers to engage students with learning opportunities anyplace, at any time of the day.  By using authenticating IDs and passwords, teachers and students can interact in ways that cannot be done on standard "public" web pages.
