Create your own student account on Blackboard

Filed under: Blackboard, how_to — Tags: — jobadge @ 11:19 am

A student view account can be created for a user if one doesn’t already exist. The standard format for the account is ‘cfsUsername_s’, so for a CFS account of ‘abc1’, the student view account will be ‘abc1_s’. The user needs to enter a password (and a password confirmation) and they also have the option of enrolling the account as a student onto the current course.

If a student view account already exists, the user has the option to modify the password.

AVAILABILITY AND RESTRICTIONS
The tool will be available from Tuesday 9th December. The tool is only available for users with a course role of Instructor, Teaching Assistant, Grader or Course Builder.

TO ACCESS THE TOOL
To access the tool please follow this Blackboard menu route: COURSE SITE > CONTROL PANEL > Course Tools Section > STUDENT VIEW ACCOUNT
