There is an online orientation available for students. It's set up like a course in which you go through lesson folders to learn more about Blackboard. The orientation is self-paced and available to students one month before classes start. You can access the orientation simply by logging into your Blackboard account.

Every student who is registered is issued a Blackboard (Bb) account that follows this format:

Username: 32_900XXXXXX (student ID number)

Password: 32_900XXXXXX (same as your username)

 

Step 1: Click to watch this video. 

Step 2: Go to the the Bb website and log in: https://gwinnetttech.blackboard.com

Step 3: Change your Bb password after you log in.

 

On the login screen, type in your username and password.

 

You'll see the welcome screen, click "close." You will only see this screen the very first time you log in.

 

After that, you need to change your password. Find "Tools" and click on "Personal Information."

 

Click on "change password."

 

Type in a new password and verify it by retyping it againg. Click "submit" when you're done.
