Blackboard (Faculty): Frequently Asked Questions

How do I grant non-student Blackboard users access to my Blackboard website?
First you need to choose what rights you want the user to have on your website. Here are the options:
  • Instructor – this role grants the user full access to your class materials, including add/modify/delete permissions. This role also grants the capability to change another user's role in the class. Users with the Instructor role will also receive emails from students who email the Instructor.
  • Teaching Assistant – this role grants the user full access to your class materials, just like Instructor. This user may not change another user’s role in the class and does not receive student emails sent to the Instructor.
  • Course Builder – this role grants all rights that the Teaching Assistant has, except the user cannot Archive or Export the Blackboard website or access the Early Warning System.
  • Grader – this role grants restricted access to the class Control Panel. This user may access the Gradebook and the Early Warning System but cannot otherwise modify the course.
First, enroll the user as a student, as follows:
  1. Go to your Blackboard website Control Panel.
  2. Click Enroll User.
  3. Search for the user you wish to add to your class.
    Note: If the user does not exist in the system, they will need to contact the system administrator. All WCC employees should have a Blackboard username.
  4. Check the box next to the user you wish to enroll.
  5. Click Submit.
Second, change the person's course role to one of the choices above:
  1. Go to your Blackboard website Control Panel.
  2. Click List/Modify Users.
  3. Search for the user you wish to modify.
  4. Click Properties for the user.
  5. Click the radio button to the left of the permission level you wish to grant the user.
    Note: Guest access is disabled at Washtenaw Community College. Setting a user with a role of Guest will result in them being unable to access your Blackboard website.
