What is Blackboard?


What is Blackboard?

Blackboard is the learning management system used by Alpena Community College. Blackboard enables instructors to provide students with access to course materials, communication tools, online assessments, grades, and the ability to submit assignments electronically.

Blackboard student accounts are available at the beginning of each new semester. (Not all instructors use Blackboard for instruction; check with your instructor.)

How do I Login to Blackboard?
Blackboard can be accessed anywhere, anytime you have an Internet connection.

  1. To access Blackboard go to https://bb.alpenacc.edu
  2. Type in your Username and Password and select Login. (Instructor will provide username and password.)
  3. Once you log in, your classes will show up in the My Courses Module. Simply click the appropriate link to enter a course.
  4. Change your Password by selecting Personal Information then Change Password.

NOTE: Each time you finish using Blackboard, please make sure to properly log out using the Logout button at the top of your screen. This is important because if you simply close the window, rather than logging out, the next person to use the computer could have access to your Blackboard account.
