University uses the Blackboard™ learning management system to facilitate the
delivery of both online and blended courses. Online courses are asynchronous,
but do have specific dates when assignments are due. Blended courses are conducted
in a combination of face-to-face and online sessions. Many courses are currently
delivered in these formats and more are under development for both undergraduate
and graduate students.
Blackboard™ may be accessed by clicking on the Blackboard™ link. Login
information for students follows. It should be noted that, for face-to-face
use of Blackboard™ is the instructor’s prerogative. Students who
enroll in the undergraduate accelerated programs will be required to access
course modules online through Blackboard™.
To Access Blackboard:
Click on the Login button at the top of the page.
Your username is the FIRST PART of your Lewis University
e-mail address or the following format:
- The standard format is:
First 6 letters of your last name plus first 2 letters of your
first name. For example: a login for Mark
Johnson would be johnsoma.
- If your last name is less than 6 characters, use for entire
last name. For example: the username/password for Mark
Sky would be skyma.
- Occasionally, because of duplication, usernames don’t quite follow the
pattern. The second ‘rule’ for generating a username
is: first 6 characters of your last name plus first initial plus
Example: Since Mark Johnson is already johnsoma, Matthew L Johnson
might be johnsoml.
- Your username and password are the same until you manually
change your password.
- Once you have successfully logged in, you will see your personalized
online entry page, which includes any courses you are enrolled
in as well as announcements
and general information.
