Getting Started FAQ
Your Blackboard user ID is WSUID@wichita.edu, and your password is your WSU password. You can access Blackboard in two ways:
- Enter the URL blackboard.wichita.edu. Log in using your Blackboard credentials.
- Log in to your myWSU page using your WSU ID and password, and select the Blackboard Icon on the top right of your screen. Be aware that this sign-in method automatically logs you out of Blackboard after a period of time, which may cause you to lose any work in progress.
Courses you are registered for automatically appear on the Courses tab of the Base Navigation menu. All courses, past and present, are listed there, organized by semester. For information about changing the course view, visit the Blackboard Base Navigation section below.
Courses are added to Blackboard 30 days before the first day of class. Your instructor must make a Blackboard course available before you will be able to enter the site and access content.
Wichita State is currently transitioning from the Original Blackboard format to the new Ultra Blackboard format. The format for each course is determined by your instructor, so until the transition process is complete, you will likely see classes in both formats. Visit the Blackboard Help section below for training and information on Original and Ultra formats.
