Welcome to the Blackboard e-Education platform—designed to enable educational innovations everywhere by connecting people and technology.
We’ve introduced a new tool to myWPI this summer called Qwickly. Qwickly is a tool that brings commonly used (and often buried) functions of myWPI to a simple to use module on your Home screen. Qwickly has four main features: Course Availability, Post Announcement, Send Email, and Needs Grading. Qwickly is fairly intuitive to use, but here's the short "how to:" Visit our blog for the full instructions on how to use Qwickly.
To make your course available, click on Course Availability, and use the toggle “On/Off” to quickly (see what I did there?) show or hide your course to students.
Click on Post Announcement and you will be presented with a list of all the courses you are teaching. Click the check boxes to select which courses to which you would like to post the announcement.
To send an e-mail click on Send Email. Click the check boxes to select which courses to which you would like to send email.
Finally, clicking on “Needs Grading” on the home page shows you a breakdown of how many items have been turned in in each class you teach. Clicking on the link takes you directly to the Needs Grading page in Grade Center.
TTL is hoping that Qwickly will be a great time saver for faculty and we look forward to any feedback you have!
Please note that the new Microsoft Edge browser packaged with Windows 10 is not yet supported by myWPI (Blackboard). We have begun testing the Edge browser and there are compatibility issues- most notably with the text editor functionality in myWPI.
If you have a computer or tablet running Windows 10, please use an alternate browser such as Firefox, Chrome or Internet Explorer when accessing myWPI until the issues have been resolved.
If you need any assistance or have any questions, please contact the Help Desk at x5888 or email email@example.com
myWPI may be unavailable for some or all of the time between 4:00 AM - 7:00 AM (EST) every Wednesday and Friday in order to perform regular system maintenance. When possible, planned maintenance will be posted on this login page and on IT News Alerts. Extended outages will be announced via e-mail.
To prevent possible data loss please do any critical work outside of these hours. Thank you for your cooperation.
Welcome to WPI! If you created your computing accounts recently please note that you do need to wait at least one hour before logging into myWPI. New User Accounts need to be synced across several services which can take a small amount of time. Attempting to access myWPI before your account has been fully synced will grant you access as a guest.
