Quick View for first time use
Login to Blackboard
Open the Blackboard site login page. (http://blackboard.pharmacy.ac.uk ) It will look like the image on the right. The link will open a second window for Blackboad, this one should continue open. You will have been sent a user name and password. Click the User Login button and enter them in the appropriate text boxes in lower case. Click Login.
If your login is successful you will see a screen similar to the one below.
You will see some extra content boxes (additional tutorial material and other advertising from Blackboard) - these can safely be removed by clicking the red X at the top right of each until the screen looks less cluttered and more like the one above. The modify content and modify layout links centre right in the image above, control what you see, what colours and where it appears - you can modify these as you wish.
Change your Password:
Use Tools->Personal Information->Change Password to change your password to something that you will find easy to remember. (There are no restrictions on size or characters). Check that your email is correct in your Personal Information section field. This is the email address that Blackboard will be using to send email to you.
The link on the right in the box titled My Courses will take you into your Course where you will find the course material. Tutors will see an extra course 'Tutors' course in addition to teaching courses.
Once you have selected the course you will see any announcements for the course. The course menu on the left allows you to navigate to the different sections of the course mainly couse material. The tools box is a separate menu entry for other purposes such as email, disscussion, group pages. The course map shows a list of all the course material within the menu and folders.
