The Blackboard Learning Management System (LMS) is utilized for most of web-based courses offered at Atlanta Technical College. (Please note: Some Math courses are delivered via Mylabsplus (atlantatech.mylabsplus.com) and not on Blackboard till spring of 2016. If you are currently taking an online, hybrid or web-enhanced class, you may access Blackboard on the first day of class by using the following login information.
Blackboard Learning Information
Blackboard Learning is a web platform that we use through GVTC. This is a program that is created for distance learning courses. The Blackboard Learning program will change from time to time. There are upgrades from time to time. The upgrades occur between semesters. If you take classes from semester to semester, Blackboard Learning may look different. Each instructor will add their individual classroom information to the Blackboard Learning site. Each instructor’s course will look different from other courses that you take. This is the same as if you were taking classes in the classroom. The classes are different for each instructor.
Logging Into Blackboard
To login into Blackboard visit atlantatech.blackboard.com and type in your username and password.
- 23_STUDENTIDNUMBER (no spaces & also note there is an underscore separating the two digit college identifier and your student ID.) 23 is the Atlanta Tech two digit college identifier.
- Your password is the same as your username.
- Username: 23_studentID Example: 23_900123456
- Password: 23_studentID Example: 23_900123456
If you are having any difficulties with your course, contact your instructor immediately. Do not wait! If you email your instructor and would like them to reply to your email, you need to let the instructor know in the email that you would like a response. Give your instructor time to answer your email. Be sure to put your name and the class number (CRN) that you are in somewhere in the email. Instructors may not know your email address. Some instructors will answer email quickly; others will wait till a specific time during the day. Your message should be brief and to the point. If you call and get an instructor’s voicemail, leave a message. If you don’t leave a message, the instructor will not know that you called.
Instructors will have due dates and deadlines for homework assignments, exams and quizzes. You must meet these due dates. Some instructors may take off points or some instructors will not accept late work. Be sure to find out in your class the policy for late work. If it is not listed in the course, email your instructor and ask. Technical problems with your computer or your connection may or may not be taken into consideration by your instructor. Again, if you have a question, ask before a problem occurs.
