Step 5: Accessing Your Course

Log into Blackboard for course access information. Don't see your course when you log into Blackboard? Your instructor may not have opened it yet. Many faculty members wait until just before the first class to open Blackboard to students. If there are problems accessing your class please call the Video Communications Center: 573-341-4526.
