Blackboard Toolkit for Students

Blackboard is our online course management system, it functions as your virtual classroom.

To verify that the computer you are currently using is compatible with Blackboard, please visit our Browser Requirement Check and follow instructions there. 

You can log into Blackboard about a week before the beginning of the semester for more tutorials, but your actual courses won't appear there until the first day of classes. New students, you will need to create your UTAD account first.

Taking Tests in Blackboard

When taking tests in Blackboard, it is recommended to use either Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome as your web browser.  Please read our Test Taking Tips for more information.

Bb LogoLogging into your Course Following Registration

If you registered early your course will be available in Blackboard on its scheduled start date, as listed in your "detailed class schedule" in myUT. Later registrations, either the week before the semester begins or during the add/drop period, may cause delays of one to three business days (24-72 hours).

The course instructor is your best source for information should this occur. Contact the instructor by email, explain your situation, and ask for the course syllabus. (Call us if you cannot find the email address.) Please note that additional delays may occur depending on your student account status.

If you registered for a course that starts after the first day of the normal term, you will have access to the course on the scheduled start date. Courses that begin after the start of the term, may have different end dates; read your syllabus carefully for details.
