Blackboard

Blackboard is the interactive software program used for online classes. It permits discussions, class communication, online testing, and online online assignment submission.

First Time Blackboard Users: Your user name is the same as your Windows domain account. Follow the "Setting Your Password" instructions to set your password before you log in for the first time." A Blackboard account is created for every student who has a Windows domain account. Your Blackboard user name is the same as your Windows domain account; however, the passwords are not the same. You must follow the "Setting Your Password" instructions to set your Blackboard password before you log in for the first time. You may set you Blackboard password to be either the same or different than your domain password.

If you received your Windows domain account after 5:00 p.m. or on the weekend there may be an overnight delay between the time you receive your Windows domain account and when the Blackboard account is created.
