How to find out if my course is in Blackboard and Login

Let’s get started with how to log into Blackboard. First, open your web browser. I suggest using Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome and go to the TWU website. In the browser’s address bar type click Enter and the TWU website will open.

Click on:

  1. Info for
  2. Current Students
  3. On the page under Top Links click My Courses

The My Courses page will open. TWU uses Blackboard and Canvas to support online, hybrid, and face-to-face courses. Most courses are offered in Blackboard. The courses offered in Canvas are listed on the My Courses page below the Log into Blackboard button. You will want to review the list of Canvas courses to find out if your Course will be taught in Canvas. If your course is not listed here then your course is in Blackboard. 

From this page, select the Log into Blackboard button.

A login screen will open in a new browser window. You will have to enter your TWU Portal Username and Password and select the Login button.

If you have any problems trying to log into Blackboard, contact the Technology Service Desk for help.


The Blackboard Homepage with all your registered courses is the first that you will see when you log into Blackboard. Courses you are registered for may not be immediately available because:

  • Blackboard is updated with course registration information 4 to 8 hours behind the TWU registrar system.
  • Also, these will be times when your instructor has not yet made the Blackboard course available to students, so it is not available for you to see.

If you need to request course information like the syllabus, textbooks, or other course materials before your course is available in Blackboard, email the instructor using the contact information available on the course listing in WebAdvisor. You can find WebAdvisor by logging into the Pioneer Portal.

To learn more about these topics and others, visit the TWU Blackboard Support Center.
If you have any questions, please contact the Technology Service Desk.
