Adding Users to Blackboard Learn
Adding Instructors and TAs To Blackboard Learn
Departments are required to complete the Enrollment Management Administrative Systems (EMAS) form to add Instructors or TAs to current courses in Campus Connection (note, an employee ID will be required for this to occur). Once the Instructor or TAs have been created in Campus Connection, their names will appear for the departments to add them to course sections in CLSS. This step is required to ensure compliance with FERPA and access to student records. Once they have been added to CLSS they will be assigned to the section in Campus Connection, which will populate them into the Blackboard Learn Original course.
Visit the Blackboard & Campus Connection Security Access page to add Instructors and TAs to Blackboard Learn Course(s).
Adding Learning Assistants, Graders, Guests, and Evaluators to Blackboard Learn
Departments must fill out a form to add Learning Assistants, Graders, Guests, and Evaluators in to Blackboard Learn course(s). This step is required to ensure compliance with FERPA and access to student records. Before the form is submitted, users being enrolled need to complete the Data Privacy & Yearly FERPA Training course. Departments will then complete and submit the Blackboard, and Campus Connection Security Access form. Once the Yearly FERPA training is confirmed for the user, it will be routed to the Learning and Applied Innovation Center (LAIC) where the user will be enrolled.
Visit the Blackboard & Campus Connection Security Access page to add Learning Assistants, Graders, Guests, and Evaluators in to Blackboard Learn course(s).
