Faculty Blackboard support

Blackboard is Georgian College’s online Learning Management System. It can be used to communicate with students, post links to important information, post course content such as lecture materials, and facilitate student collaboration by means of blogs, discussion boards and wikis. There is also a grade center in which marks can be entered and made visible to students at any point in the semester. Our Blackboard system has a link with the Banner enrollment system which automatically syncs and populates each course with enrolled students three times every day. You are not required to enter any student data into your Blackboard course. You can login to Blackboard via the Georgian College intranet (my.georgiancollege.ca) or click the “Login to Blackboard” button. If you are new to Blackboard try our self-paced online module found below.

If you have any questions, please contact our Instructional Technology Technician at facultybbsupport@georgiancollege.ca. Contact IT Support for login issues at ext.1732 or itsupport@georgiancollege.ca.
