Tech Links

Blackboard is fairly intuitive and easy to use, but there are many features to master. Understanding Bb well helps you better deal with student questions. Here are some tutorials and help files that can also been linked to your course or faculty Web page for students to use.

For information on Bb containers (procedures, requesting containers, timeline for development, Colleague, etc.), see Server or Blackboard Container Preparation.

To report Blackboard slowdown, send an email to and explain what is happening (or call the Help Desk (619) 660-4395 and they can report it).

Complete an online course on how to use Bb or earn an Online Teaching Certification through @ONE.
