We would like to welcome you to the start of UNC’s 2009-2010 Academic Year. The start of class is fast approaching and we wanted to provide you with some helpful tips and updates about your access to and the support of Blackboard. If you were not already aware, all online courses open and become visible by you as a student in the course on the first day of classes, August 24th, 2009. You will not be able to access any content prior to that date unless the instructor has setup the course to open prior to that date. If the instructor has requested that course materials be accessed prior to that date, please contact the instructor for additional detail regarding the scheduled start date. If you have any additional questions regarding Blackboard, please utilize one of the following options: Telephone: (970) 351-4357, Online: http://www.unco.edu/supportu.htm or E-mail: LMS.Support@unco.edu.
