Blackboard Learn: How to get started

Welcome to Blackboard Learn, WSU’s learning management system. We believe you’ll find this LMS is a simple, convenient, and flexible way to earn your degree through WSU Global Campus. The links and other information below will help you get started.


How to Log In

Go to learn.wsu.edu and log in with your Network ID (the first part of your @wsu.edu address), and your Network ID password.


Sample Course

View a sample course at learn.wsu.edu. Select “Non-WSU sign-in Here” and log in with:

Username: wsustudent/Password: wsustudent


Blackboard Functions

Wondering how to submit an assignment? Check your grades? Send email? Take a test? Blackboard Learn has all those answers and more in 24 short videos. Check the video playlist on YouTube.


Going Mobile With Blackboard

Blackboard supports mobile use on both Android and Apple. Find instructions and links to download the free app at the How to Use Mobile Learn Page. Once the app is downloaded, search for "Washington State University Blackboard Learn." (If you search for simply “Washington State University,” you’ll get the app for the previous system, Angel.)


Study Groups and Social Media

Blackboard has excellent social media tools that let you create a profile, chat with classmates outside the course space, and create a space for a study group or project. Here’s a brief video explaining those options.


Student Support

For a menu of support options, including technical help and disability accommodations, visit our student support page.

To join the Blackboard alerts email list and receive notifications about service outages, visit lists.wsu.edu/join.php and select Blackboard-alerts from the drop-down menu. A history of Blackboard outages is also available at this link.
