Blackboard Information and Tutorials


Blackboard is an Internet-based software program that the College uses to deliver the majority of its web courses as well as to supplement and enhance on-campus courses. Each course at Owens Community College has a Blackboard site and even if you're taking an on-campus course, your instructor may ask that you use the Blackboard course site for their course. The Blackboard login page is located at http://blackboard.owens.edu. If you have problems accessing Blackboard, you can contact the Owens IT Help Desk at (567) 661-7120 or helpdesk@owens.edu.

Additional Blackboard support and resources are available 24/7 at the e-Learning Blackboard Support Portal.
