  • Using Blackboard
    It is strongly recommended that students, faculty, and staff use the Mozilla Firefox Web Browser when working with Blackboard in any capacity.

    There is a known issue with Safari (Version 11.1) affecting students and faculty. Users get an error message when submitting assignments or uploading course material to Blackboard.  This only occurs with Safari 11.1 on Mac. To avoid this error, please use the Mozilla Firefox Web Browser.

  • Important Note for Faculty:
    At the beginning of every semester, Instructors are required to make their courses available. Students will not see your course until it is made "available."

    Click HERE for step-by-step instructions to make your course available.

  • Change to Blackboard Login Method
    As of July 2017, students, faculty, and staff will log in to Blackboard using their CUNYfirst username (followed by @login.cuny.edu) and CUNYfirst password instead of your regular Blackboard credentials. The process of accessing Blackboard will otherwise be the same.

    EXAMPLE: If your CUNYfirst Username is George.Washington76, you would add @login.cuny.edu to the end of the username so it looks like:

    George.Washington76@login.cuny.edu. After that, enter in your CUNYfirst password as you normally would to complete the login process to Blackboard
