How Do I Get Started in Blackboard?
You may wish to print these instructions to have as a reference.
|Step 1:||Go to http://clackamas.blackboard.com in your web browser. This will take you to the login page for Blackboard.|
If you already have a Blackboard account, click on the "Login" button, provide your username and password, and skip to STEP 5.
If you do not have a Blackboard account, click on the "Create Account" button.
|Step 3:||Fill in the information requested and click on the "Submit" button at the bottom of the page. Note: You must provide an accurate email address when you create your Blackboard account.|
|Step 4:||Click "OK" on the next screen.|
|Step 5:||Click on the green "Courses" tab near the top of the screen.|
On the right side of the screen (under "Course Catalog"), click on the appropriate category for your course (usually it will be the current term, followed by subcategories representing subject areas).
------- OR -------
Search for your course by title or number in the "Course Search" box on the left of the screen.
|Step 7:||After you’ve browsed categories or conducted a search, a list of courses will appear. Locate the name of your course in this list, and click on the gray "Enroll" button to the right of the course's name.|
Click on the "Submit" button at the bottom of the next page. This will send an enrollment request to your instructor by email.
Please note: Blackboard will give you a message telling you that your login request has FAILED. This is not accurate, however, and you should not be concerned; your enrollment request is proceeding as you intended.
You will receive an email message indicating that your instructor has enrolled you in the course.
Once you receive this email, login to Blackboard (http://clackamas.blackboard.com) again; a link to your course will be provided under "Courses in which you are participating."
A direct link to your course will also be provided for you in the email from your instructor.
If you do not receive an email within a few days (giving your instructor time to respond to your email request), check back in Blackboard to see if you've been enrolled.
