Logging in to Blackboard (your online learning course):
- Go to https://blackboard.utdl.edu
- Enter your Blackboard ID and password where indicated, and click log in. If you have not obtained your username, or set your password, please see the instructions at the bottom of this page* "Instructions for Activating Your Login Account."
- Complete “A Guide to UT On-Line Learning,” found on your Blackboard (Bb) home page.
- Once the semester begins, click on a course.
We think you will find it helpful to complete steps 1-3, before the semester begins.
Note: Prior to the start of the semester you will only have access to review the Blackboard (Bb) orientation course, “A Guide to UT On-Line Learning.” Your course(s) will appear in Blackboard on their scheduled start date(s).
A few instructors require students to come to campus to meet in-person or for testing; this will be detailed in your syllabus. The courses that we know require on-site testing, or face-to-face meetings, are indicated with a "V" on the schedule page. Also, if your course instructor permits off-site proctored testing, indicated with a "P," please review the following policy requirements.

Why do my courses appear on the myUT Courses page, but not in Blackboard?
