Institutions have some control over what you see on the login page. However, everyone needs the same three pieces of information to gain access:
- The web address of your institution's Blackboard Learn site
- Your username
- Your password
In most cases, the web address given by your institution directs you to the login page. If you're directed to another location, look for a login button or a special portal area.
Contact the computing help desk at your institution. Blackboard doesn't have access to your institution's Blackboard Learn site and can't help you with these types of questions.
If you're not sure how to contact them, look for the technology office on your institution's website. You can also search the web for your institution's name + Blackboard + help or support.
If you forgot your password, you can use the Forgot Your Password? link on the login page. You must complete one of the two options on the Lost Password page to obtain a new password. After you submit your information, you can create your new password based on instructions you receive in an email. Passwords are case sensitive, must not contain spaces, and must be at least one character.
After you log in, you can change your password. We recommend that you change your password periodically to ensure security. Don't use common personal information as your password, such as your name.
Passwords are case-sensitive, must not contain spaces, and must be at least one character.
Use the Forgot Password? link on the login page to change your password. Log out to access that page again. You must complete one of the two options on the Lost Password page to obtain a new password. After you submit your information, you can create your new password based on instructions you receive in an email.
You can also change your password from your Profile page. Go to your profile and select Change Password. On the Change Password panel, type your old password and your new password. Select Save when you're finished.
If you change your system password, it won't affect any external accounts (such as Google) that you use to log in to Blackboard Learn.
When you change your password, all other sessions end to protect your security. If your account is logged in on another browser, the session is terminated and you need to log in again.
