Getting help for blackboard and/or eCollege
Memo: To students taking online classes or classes that are web assisted
Re: Getting Help for Blackboard and/or eCollege
Please note: eCollege and Blackboard and separate systems and the procedures for getting help are different.
If you are taking a class that uses Blackboard (http://blackboard.fau.edu) the following steps should be followed when you encounter a problem:
- Your first point of contact for assistance with Blackboard is your instructor. If your instructor cannot assist you with a problem in Blackboard they will provide you with additional contact information for help.
- If you can login to Blackboard but do not understand an assignment or are unsure of the directions you have been given you should contact your professor for assistance.
- If you can login to Blackboard and are having technical difficulties you can click on the Help button at the top of the screen or the Help Desk button in your course under the Tools area (not all instructors leave the tools active so you might not see this area in the course you are taking).
- The help button will open a second window that is titled FAU Blackboard Support. There is a lot of information there that will assist you in solving your own problems and if you cannot there is a link that allows you to submit a Help Desk ticket.
- Visit the Distance Learning Frequently Asked Questions page at http://www.itss.fau.edu/dl_faq.htm.
- 6. If you cannot log in to Blackboard you should look up your FAU NetID http://accounts.fau.edu and make sure you are using the correct username and password. Most of the time your password is your original OASIS pin # which is 2 zeros followed by the 2-digit DAY and 2-digit YEAR of birth.
If you have tried your FAU NetID and password and can still not log in to Blackboard you should contact email@example.com for assistance.
If you are taking a class that uses eCollege:
The Login Pages are as follows:
College of Business - http://faumba.net
eCollege Help Desk for College of Business Students - firstname.lastname@example.org
College of Nursing - http://faunursing.net
eCollege Help Desk for College of Nursing Students - email@example.com
Please note: FAU does not support students on the eCollege system. All help requests must be directed to eCollege for solutions.

Best wishes as you make your transition from FAU students to FAU alumni and professional social workers.
