Getting Started with Blackboard

This help website is only for Blackboard.

UB's primary Learning Management System is now UB Learns, powered by Brightspace.


Learn how to enable your courses on UB Learns, combine two or more courses and work with advanced setup options.

  • Using the UB Learns Class Setup Tool
    By default, students who resign or withdrawn from your class are removed from the class list in UB Learns. Use the UB Learns Class Setup Tool to keep these students in your UB Learns class list (these students will not see the course listed on their Courses page).

Use our contact form to submit a help ticket (you may be asked for your UBITName and password). After the form is submitted, a member of the UB Learns support team will follow up with you within one business day.
