Help accessing Blackboard
Almost all problems reported by users of Blackboard fall into three categories:
- Users are running "popup blockers". Several tools inside Blackboard, including chat rooms, use popups. Please disable your popup blocker(s) before running Blackboard.
- Users are running firewalls which interfere with Blackboard functions. You may need to configure your firewall to allow Blackboard to function properly. (Open this TCP port to webct2.cune.edu and blackboard.cune.edu: 2304 (chat).
- Make sure your username and password are entered with proper case. E.g. John.Doe rather than john.doe.
In addition, please check out "Check Browser" in the upper-left menu bar on the Blackboard login page. This will take you to a Browser Check page that will lead you through all the required settings for your browser. Green check marks are good, red X's are not.
