Where can I buy course textbooks?

Required and supplementary textbooks are posted on course pages on Humber’s website. Textbooks are also listed on course outlines that can be accessed through student blackboard sites. Textbooks can be bought through Humber’s bookstore or students can also visit www.scorpiobookstore.com, Amazon, or other retailers of their choosing.

Where can online students get support?

Find out the hours of operation, contact information or book an appointment.

What is Blackboard and how do I access it?

All classes (online and face-to- face) use a learning management system called Blackboard. The tools within Blackboard support student learning and engagement through the dissemination of course information and learning materials and by providing access to various communication tools. In addition to instructors sharing course material and resources, assessment submission and other evaluations may be administered in Blackboard. Use from course to course may vary and your instructor(s) will clarify his/her expectations for use of the course site.

Students will have access to their blackboard site three days before the start of their first class. To login, go to MyHumber and enter you user name and password.

Please note: Final grades are NOT posted on Blackboard; they are only posted on MyHumber.
