Getting Started

Blackboard Vista is a Web-based learning management system that provides a standard environment and interface for the development and delivery of Web-enhanced and completely online courses at UAB. As a student using Blackboard Vista, the first thing you need to do is make sure your computer is set up properly. Once you have done that, you can begin working in your course(s).

To learn how to properly setup your computer, please choose the computer setup guide for your computer
located here.


Tutorials and Guides

These interactive tutorials will help you get comfortable with the features and functions available in Blackboard Vista. You will need to enter your BlazerID and password to access these materials.*

Note: These tutorials were created prior to Blackboard's purchase of WebCT, so in the tutorials you will see the older WebCT name. Other than the name, everything else is the same.
