Blackboard Video Tutorials

Welcome to Rappahannock Community College’s Blackboard 9.1 Student Tutorial site. If you have any questions about how to do something, please take a look through the videos below, provided by Blackboard themselves. You may find it helpful to watch the video with your course open in another window as you go step by step through a process. The video play controls can be accessed by pointing to the bottom of the video.

Important Blackboard Note
The VCCS will only create a Blackboard Account after a student has registered to take a class. The account will be created the night of the registration and be ready for use by the next morning. A Blackboard course will only appear to students after they are enrolled (within 24 hours of registration in SIS) and once the instructor has made it available — typically on the first day of the semester.
