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

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. http://www.uh.edu/blackboard to click on the white “Log in Here Blackboard Learn” button. Faculty will enter their CougarNet ID and password.
  2. http://accessuh.uh.edu and enter their CougarNet ID and password or follow the links to get their CougarNet ID and password.
