How to Access Blackboard


For those of you who have not been logged into Blackboard this document contains both a video and a step by step walkthrough on how to do so. 

Here is a video link to this process:   How to Log Into Blackboard

Step 1: Go to  and click the Student Resources Menu Tab.

Step 2:  There are two ways to get to Blackboard from here.  You can either click on My EC3 (yellow arrow Step 3 below) or hit the Blackboard link (red arrow) directly (Step 4 below.)  

Step 3: (My EC3 link):  You will see the screen below. Hit the Bb tab (red arrow) and you will be prompted to enter your sign on. When doing so you MAY get the screen on the black below. If you do just hit the Return to Login Page (blue arrow) and it will take you to the normal BB login screen

Step 4 (Blackboard link): Below is the normal login screen.   

Enter your Username (blue arrow).  

USERNAME: ______________________ (This is your student email address MINUS the

TEMPORARY PASSWORD: _____________________ (update after logging in using the temporary password)

Then enter your password (red arrow), this is NOT the same as your email password, unless you set it up to be the same. Below the Sign On button, you will see a drop-down window that has two options (yellow arrow); Sign on with third party account and Azure Single Sign-On.  Select the Third-party option as it is not set up for Single Sign-On (even if you were able to do so previously.)  If you select SSO it will put you in a sign in loop, that looks like the error screen above. 

If you have never signed in it will take you through a few info screens, then you will see the screen below.  This is what you will see when you log in every other time.  

If you are unable to log in try to clear your cache or use a different browser (it does not work with Microsoft Edge well). If you are still unable to connect contact Kimber Forrester at
