Welcome Bobcats!

Fall Semester finds many new changes for Blackboard, starting with a new look for our login page.  The new login page is a result of Blackboard being added to a growing number of applications that are now available via Single Sign On.

The content from several publishing companies has now been made available within Blackboard through the use of Building Blocks.  More information about Building Blocks can be found here.

The Browser Checker has been replaced by the Browser Tester which is available in the My Support tab within Blackboard.

Remember that you can find step by step instructions for using Blackboard by visiting the My Support tab within Blackboard or by using the How To Guides list on this page.

Blackboard Tips

Instructors:  Remember to make your course available for student viewing.  Here are the steps:

  • Open the course within Blackboard
  • Go to the Control Panel
  • Select Customization
  • Select Properties
  • Change the Available marker to Yes
  • Click Submit

Students:  If you do not see your course in Blackboard, it is because your instructor has not yet made it available to you.  Please note:  your instructors have the option to use Blackboard, it is not required, so some of your courses may never appear within Blackboard.
