Dear registrant:

  • Make sure you can access Blackboard.
  • If your central login ID or Password does not work, you will need to go to IT with photo ID and get them to do a reset. North Campus: NX 210, Lakeshore Campus: A212.
  • Be sure you have a course to work with in Blackboard. This could be a live site or better yet a DEV site or SANDBOX. Both a DEV site and Sandbox can be requested using the appropriate e-forms at its.humber.ca. Please note that this request can take up to 24 hours to be processed. 

If you do not have access to Blackboard AND a site to work in you will not be able to actively participate in the workshop.
