Blackboard Access for Users without iSolutions accounts

Every member of the University has an account on Blackboard. Members may access the service using their standard iSolutions username and password. Blackboard’s user database mirrors the iSolutions user database which in turn takes its data from that provided by Professional Services departments. A snapshot program runs overnight and at lunchtime and early evening to make sure that Blackboard has up-to-date user information.

Access for users without iSolutions Accounts

If you require Blackboard access for a colleague who is not a member of the University it is possible to request they be given visitor status.

Our webpages have full information on this procedure.

Once the Visitor has subscribed they will receive access to Blackboard within 24 hours and may then be added to courses in the usual way.
