Blackboard Account Information

Logging Into Blackboard

IMPORTANT NOTE: Radford University Carilion students, faculty, and staff will continue to use Blackboard through the spring 2020 semester. Your Blackboard account is separate from your Radford account, so the username and password are different. If you are a new student, faculty, or staff member, you should have received an email containing your Blackboard account information. This email would have been sent to your Radford email address. If you did not receive the information or cannot find it, please contact the Radford Technology Assistance Center (540-831-7500).

Important note: Because many Blackboard users have experienced problems using Internet Explorer, the preferred web browser for use with Blackboard 9.1 is Firefox (version 8 or later). We STRONGLY RECOMMEND that you download and install the latest version of the Firefox web browser for use with Blackboard. For those of you who already have Firefox installed on your system, you should probably take a moment to upgrade to the latest version.

To install or upgrade Firefox, go to www.firefox.com and click on the green download button. We recommend installing with the default options. Click here if you need detailed installation instructions.
