Blackboard is a course management system used by Northeast Alabama Community College to provide online access to instructional materials. Every active student has a Blackboard account that can be accessed when registration is complete.

Blackboard orientations
(help sessions)

To take a web-based (online) course:

  • Read the Technical Requirements for using Blackboard, and make sure you have access to a computer meeting these specifications.

  • Register.

  • Take Orientation for each class as shown on Class Schedule:
      -- Attend class Orientation if it meets on campus.
      -- Complete class Orientation within Blackboard if it is online.
      -- Class Orientation is not to be confused with orientation to using Blackboard in general, which is a hands-on training session offered at the first of each semester (see below). Class orientation is always required; orientation to using Blackboard is recommended the first time you take an online class.

  • If you have not settled all financial obligations to the college, you will not be able to access your current semester Blackboard courses. Your registration is not considered complete until all financial aid and or payments have been applied to your current semester account. At Orientation or by email, TELL YOUR INSTRUCTOR that you intend to finish registering and take the course. Ask how to avoid getting behind in your early assignments, and follow instructions. Then access Blackboard as soon as you become eligible.

  • Financial Aid Students: If your instructor does not hear from you by the end of Late Registration, your name will be turned in to Financial Aid as "not attending." If you are having computer problems, go to a different computer and email the instructor; also turn in any assignments due the first few days.

  • ALWAYS use your college email account to correspond with instructors and college offices, never a different account. Mail from other accounts may not be accepted.

  • Have a back-up plan for accessing Blackboard and college email when you have computer or Internet problems. NACC computers in the library or computer labs can be used. Never let computer problems make you miss an assignment or message.
