WKU Blackboard offers a secure, online teaching and learning space for the WKU community. Faculty can activate accounts on the system by attending an initial face-to-face or online training workshop that covers the basics of using Blackboard. To register for a Blackboard workshop, go to the IT Training Site and select the appropriate training. Once faculty members have completed the Blackboard New Instructor Workshop, they can create course sites and activate student accounts for the sites using the Faculty Tools tab inside Blackboard. Faculty and students can participate in online teaching and learning activities by logging into their course sites at https://blackboard.wku.edu.
Blackboard is accessed with your WKU NetID username and password.
