Enrolling Users

Only users with valid, current USC user names and passwords and who can access Blackboard can participate in Blackboard organizations.

Unlike a Blackboard course whose roster is tied to the University’s official course roster in the Student Information System (SIS) and is automatically updated several times each day, there is no University SIS roster for Blackboard organizations.

Because of this, the organization leader will be responsible for manually enrolling and unenrolling Blackboard organization participants within Blackboard.


For immediate response to your tech support needs, please contact the Help Desk at 213.740.5555 (option 2) or send an email to blackboard@usc.edu. USC has contracted with lynda.com, that offers several hours of Blackboard training movies for instructors and students.

Enterprise Learning Technology provides technical support and consultation for Blackboard, Web Conferencing, Lecture Capture, Clickers, and other academic technologies.
