LOG IN and getting started information will be emailed ONLY to your CCM student email account.  For information on accessing your CCM student email, click here .  All registered students have a CCM email account.  (Other important information will be emailed to you as well, be sure to check your CCM student email!)  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.
THERES 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.  MAC users please note that we do not recommend Safari.    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.
