Blackboard (Faculty/Students) - Unable to log into Blackboard
Issue with students being unable to sign into Blackboard.
Students accessing Blackboard’s login page from a web search (Google, Yahoo, etc.) are often directed to an alternate login page where CAS (the authentication protocol used at SIUE) is not the default option.
Instead, the default option is “Sign in with third party account.”
With this option selected, students will get an error message after they enter their e-ID and password and attempt to login to Blackboard.
To remedy this, students need to select the “CAS Authentication” option from the drop-down menu.
From this page they can enter a valid e-ID and password to enter Blackboard.
