When to Log into Blackboard
You will be able to log into Blackboard after you have enrolled. However, your courses will not be available until the first day of class.
Who Has to Complete
the Required Blackboard Orientation?
All Cowley students are expected to complete the Blackboard Orientation before having access to courses or course materials in Blackboard. Students who have completed the orientation once will not have to take it again for three years. The Blackboard Orientation is designed to give students the tools they need to function effectively within their courses in the LMS.
