Logging into
Blackboard is the name of the University’s virtual learning environment (VLE), a system
which allows you to access materials and communicate with other students and staff
using the Internet.

Blackboard is used across a wide range of modules within the University. This guide
outlines how you log in to the system.

1. Log in to any PC using your normal user ID and password.

        If you are unsure of how to do this on campus, refer to the Library and Computing
        Centre Information sheets or ask at the Student IT Support Helpdesk.

        If you are accessing Blackboard from home or work, connect to the Internet in the
        normal way.

2. Find and open the internet browser application (e.g. Internet Explorer or
Netscape Navigator). On campus this will be Microsoft Internet Explorer and
will be accessible on the desktop, utilising the icon shown here:

3. If you are on campus, the University of Huddersfield student home page contains a
link to Blackboard:

password. Enter these details and click the ‘Login’ button.

password that you are given on enrolment.
