For all faculty and staff with Blackboard accounts, the VCCS has activated your "student" account. To use your student account, you will need to do the following:
- As faculty or staff, go into your course through My NOVA or directly through the Blackboard login page - http://learn.vccs.edu/
- Add username_student (remember username=your username in Bb)to your course roster by going into the Control Panel>User Management>Enroll User>enter username_student in the Search box>click Search>check Add box next to user> click Submit>click OK.
- Log out of Blackboard.
- Log into Blackboard using the Blackboard direct login - http://learn.vccs.edu Your student account will NOT work by logging into Blackboard through My NOVA.
- When the Blackboard portal page opens, you will be looking at the portal page as a student would see it.
