If you use a public computer (e.g. in a computer lab), make sure to close all browser windows after logging out from Blackboard.
If you experience problems with access to Bb a very slow response during normal operation, please contact or the IT Service Desk

As a precaution save your work frequently while entering text, e.g., by using "copy-and-paste" and (for faculty) attaching files to "items" rather than entering longer text directly via the Bb text editor (this is the recommended practice).


This CUNY Portal page highlights some 'best practices' when using Bb.
