Blackboard is the Course Management System used by Wayne State University to support both in-person and online courses.

You may find your course syllabus, assignments, course materials and quizzes and tests in Blackboard.

To get to Blackboard, go to You will need to log in with your WSU AccessID and Password (the same one you use for Academica)

Firefox or Google Chrome are the preferred browsers for Blackboard. You can download a copy free:  Firefox Browser Download or Google Chrome Download

You can find the handouts, videos and more once you have logged into Blackboard. When you have logged into Blackboard, look for Student Resources at the top of the screen. Click Student Resources to find more resources on using Blackboard and its functions.
