Information for current students

Blackboard (web based learning environment)

As of 25 August, all Utrecht University students and staff will be using the new and improved version of the digital learning environment Blackboard.

What has changed?
When you log in with your Solis ID, you will immediately see that the design has changed. There are several new, handy functionalities, and it takes fewer mouse-clicks to navigate. Staff will have access to several new interactive tools for their courses. Although some functions may have moved on the screen, everything can be found quickly.

Blackboard app
You will also be able to use the Blackboard Mobile Learn app to access Blackboard information on your mobile devices. This app is suitable for Android, Blackberry, iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. 
The app will become available in the beginning of September.

Need help?
In Blackboard, under ‘Support’ > ‘Support students’, you will find a Quick Start Guide to help you get started. If you encounter any problems or if you have any questions, please contact your faculty’s helpdesk. Contact details can be found under the ‘Support Students’ tab.
