Video Tours of an Online Course
Fully Online, HyFlex and technology enhanced Face to Face classes at UT Tyler all share the same Learning Management System (LMS) and that is Blackboard. Therefore, if you are new to UT Tyler, or if this is your first time using Blackboard, please feel free to view one or more of the following informational videos related to successful navigation of your classes. These videos cover topics from "Logging In" to "Checking Grades" and even how to get help if you are experiencing trouble.
Once you have gone through the videos, you are more than welcome to enter UT Tyler's Orientation Class. You will be able to practice everything that was explained in the informational videos and see if you can accomplish the tasks. Although your individual UT Tyler Online, HyFlex and/or technology enhanced Face to Face class may appear different than the Orientation Course, all classes will share the same common platform.
Prospective students can access the Sample Orientation course by navigating to Blackboard in their browser (we recommend Internet Explorer, Chrome, or Firefox) and entering the following credentials:
After successfully logging in, the browser will display a landing page with a single course link titled "Blackboard Orientation Course". This is a hot link that the student will "click" in order to access the course.
A course announcement indicates how to access the course syllabus for specific instructions. The student can complete the course at their own pace.
