Blackboard is a course management system that allows instructors to make course materials and resources readily available to students via the web and to engage students in online collaboration projects. All Baylor classes have a corresponding Blackboard course and students are automatically loaded into these courses prior to the beginning of each semester.

To access Blackboard from the Baylor home page:

  • Visit or use the Online Systems menu on the main Baylor website.
  • Login using your Bear_ID and email password.

Blackboard training is held several times throughout the year. You can register online through the Training and Development site or schedule a one-on-one Desktop Coaching session by contacting the help desk via email, or by phone at (254)710-4357. If you would like to begin using Blackboard immediately or would like to learn how to use Blackboard on your own, various Blackboard resources and materials (including an easy-to-use Quick Reference Guide) are available on the Self Service tab located in Blackboard.

  • Assignment management
