Bookmarking Blackboard CE8

Bookmarks, also known as "Favorites" provide a quick and easy way to return to the same webpage again and again.

It is very important, however that you do not simply bookmark the Blackboard Login Page!
Do not bookmark the Blackboard Login Page


Likewise, you should not go to the Blackboard website using your web browser's history or drop-down menu!
Do not use History menu   Do not use drop-down menu


If you have bookmarked the Login Page, using this bookmark will provide unpredictable results! (Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't...) And the same is true if you try to access Blackboard with a saved address.

When in doubt, re-try by typing the URL http://bcc.blackboard.com/ in your web browser's address window by hand. Make sure that the words Burlington County College and We Can Get You There are at the top of the screen and the Burlington County College logo appears underneath the username and password box area.
