Is your Blackboard course ready for Start of Year?

12 Sep 2018

This is a reminder about the annual process of activating and preparing your Blackboard course space (Bb course) ready for Start of Year (SoY)

All Bb courses became visible to students on Monday 10 September 2018. Guidance about accessing Blackboard and updating your course(s) is available on the Teaching and Learning Support Office website: Blackboard and SOY 2018/19 . This page also includes information on activating courses for academic leads.

Please also remember that 2-factor authentication from Duo has been introduced to the login process for anyone who has a teaching or administrative role in Blackboard. In addition to entering your University username and password, you will be asked to verify your identity using your 2-factor device. You will need to follow the new login process every time you start a new session in Blackboard – ie, if you close your internet browser and start again.
