Important Information

Please read this first for important info!
IMPORTANT:  Reminder students will not be able to register/add an online course once the term begins (for example, for the spring 16 week term or the 8 week early term, the last day to add an online class is January 11, 2015).
LOG IN and getting started information will be emailed  to your @student.ccm.edu student email account or preferred .edu account for visiting students.  For information on accessing your CCM student email, click here .   REMEMBER YOU CANNOT LOG IN TO YOUR CLASS UNTIL THE FIRST DAY OF THE SEMESTER/SESSION.  Hybrid students should log on the first day of the semester for the online portion and not wait until the first meeting date.
 
SAFE ASSIGN:  If while submitting assignments through SafeAssign while logged into Blackboard, you receive a message stating "Sorry, we do not think you are logged in to SafeAssign.  Your session may have timed out.  If you have received this message in error, please contact your system administrator."  Please note that the security/privacy settings on your web browser must be set up to allow for 3rd party cookies.  Click here for instructions.
        
THERE'S AN APP FOR THAT!!!  THE CCM BlackBoard system now works with the BlackBoard app and is available for both Apple and Android devices.  The app cost is $1.99/year or $5.99/lifetime. Please note the app does not mirror the full-version of Blackboard that you access via the Internet.

BROWSER Issues:  Internet Explorer 11 is now available and it is not supported by Blackboard.  We strongly recommend that all users, use Firefox or Google Chrome.  There are many known issues with Internet Explorer.  You may download Firefox at http://www.mozilla.com as an alternate browser.   Google Chrome appears to work in most instances, however DO NOT use it for tests and quizzes. This also may present some issues.  It is recommended for all users to use Firefox.
