Using Blackboard for Instructional Continuity

In the event of class disruption due to an emergency situation, all faculty may use a Blackboard course shell to continue student communication and classroom management.

Current Blackboard users can immediately begin using Blackboard for instructional continuity.

New Blackboard Users

A blank course shell has been created for every course and section of lecture and seminar courses. Once the administration has notified the campus of a closure, faculty who have not used Blackboard in the past will be able to log on to their blank shell in two ways:

  1. to click on the white “Log in Here Blackboard Learn” button. Faculty will enter their CougarNet ID and password.
  2. and enter their CougarNet ID and password or follow the links to get their CougarNet ID and password.
