Blackboard Assist (Student View)



Blackboard Assist appears in the base navigation menu and provides links to campus resources and software. The two default featured services are links to CentralLink and Outlook. Selecting the “Try it Out” button will direct you to the desktop or browser versions of these items.

Below these options are several campus resources to assist you. Selecting any of these items will direct you to the main website for the related department. All resources relate to health and wellness, campus life, or academic and career readiness.

To customize which items appear in this area, select the “manage services” option in the top-right corner of the page.

Here, you may select if items are hidden, visible, or featured. Featured items will be more prominent, appearing at the top of the list. Hidden items will not be visible to the user.
