Welcome to Distance Education.  Please read this first for important information.

IMPORTANT:  Reminder students will not be able to register/add an online course once the term begins.  It is especially important to pay attention to payment due dates in order that you are not deleted from the course for non payment.

LOG IN and getting started information will be emailed  to your @student.ccm.edu student email account.  All registered students have a CCM email account (including visiting students).  View student email for information on accessing your account.

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. Only current term course(s) will appear in Blackboard. 

THERE’S AN APP FOR THAT!!!  Bb Student Mobile App is available  in iOS, Android and the Windows app stores for free.  Please note the app may not mirror the full-version of Blackboard that you access via the Internet.

BROWSER Issues:  The best way to determine your computers compatibility is to complete the Browser Check.  We strongly recommend that all users, use Firefox or Google Chrome.   You may download Firefox at http://www.mozilla.com as an alternate browser.   It is recommended for all users to use Firefox.

BLACKBOARD:   View Blackboard help for assistance with the most commonly used tools in Blackboard.

ONLINE TUTORING:  Smarthinking Free supplemental 24/7 on demand tutoring support and resources across a wide range of subjects is now available.  Online tutoring is an added supplemental support service to assist all CCM students, especially those who may only be taking online and/or hybrid courses or who may not have access to campus everyday.  Furthermore, online tutoring addresses the needs of students during the evenings, weekends, holidays, winter and summer terms, when the Center may not be open or operating with limited hours and available in-person tutors.
