We are aware that there are students who have never taken a course on Blackboard. To help you navigate Blackboard, we developed a new Online Learning site which includes, 5 things that you need to know, accessing Blackboard, an online prep course and more. The site and the prep course will walk you through how to log on, access your classes, read and post. It is your responsibility to participate in the distance instruction and complete assignments, exams and other requirements to receive credit for courses. Pay careful attention to how your professor asks you to accomplish this.
