Keep these things in mind when using Blackboard. 


  1. Always communicate with your instructor when you experience any issues in your courses.
  2. Use Chrome or Firefox to access Blackboard. 
  3. Documents should be saved locally on the computer before uploading to Blackboard.
  4. Documents must be in a PC-compatible format such as Word, Excel, or PDF (not Apple formats such as Pages or Numbers). 
  5. Always log out by clicking the logout icon in the upper right corner of the screen when you are finished using Blackboard.
  6. When in doubt, submit a CTL Support Request
