MyGateway System Help

The MyGateway (Blackboard) online course management system provides students and faculty with access to course materials, and a variety of tools that enable classroom communication and interaction using virtually any computer with a current web browser (such as Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox), and an Internet connection. It was first introduced at UMSL at the beginning of fall semester 2000.

The number of courses using MyGateway continues to increase each year. And as faculty continue to explore ways to facilitate "learning on demand," this trend will likely continue. MyGateway provides students with access to course content 24/7, a collaborative meeting place to share ideas and a prompt feedback mechanism to monitor performance.

For questions, consultations or to schedule a departmental workshop please contact the Faculty Resource Center at 314-516-6704 or email
