How do I know
when my course(s) will be available to me?
Most courses require a textbook. Any books, materials or software needed to support the course you are taking can be purchased from our campus bookstore. Your instructor will inform you about specific requirements. Microsoft Word is required for all Blackboard classes. Some classes require additional software.
The instructor for each course is the primary contact for questions or problems related to coursework. Use email or the telephone to get in touch with an instructor. If you need to schedule an appointment for hands-on assistance, contact your instructor for an appointment.
Try to determine if the problem is with your equipment or your Internet Service Provider. If you need further help contact Tricia Woolard at 252-940-6312, Penny Sermons at 252-940-6243 or Saundra Pinkham 252-940-6354.
Students who participate in online courses receive a grade just as they would in a traditional class. Instructors use the Blackboard gradebook to post grades.

How do I access my student
In your Blackboard course you will click on the "Tools" button and then the "Send Email" link. Select one of the user options.
