Assignments & Exams

Your professors will assign course materials and may offer tests using Blackboard. Be mindful of deadlines, testing dates, account logins, and your computer equipment.

  • Avoid completing assignments and taking exams online using a smartphone or smart device. Use a computer laptop or desktop.
  • Connect your computer to a charger, do not rely on the battery alone.
  • Use Chrome or Firefox Internet Browser, do not use Apple-Safari or MS-Edge or MS-Explorer.
  • Make sure that your internet connection is stable. Connect to the internet using an ethernet cable if available.
  • Your professor may direct you to install Respondus Lockdown Browser to take the test.
