NWSCC uses the Blackboard Learn Ultra Learning Management System (LMS) to access all online, hybrid, and web-assisted course materials. NWSCC will transition to using Canvas in Fall 2024. 

Students, faculty, and staff will log in to Blackboard using the same login credentials used for myNWSCC (Ellucian Banner).  If you are not able to log into your myNWSCC and/or Blackboard accounts, please complete the Login Assistance Form.  Someone will reply within 24 hours (response time may be delayed on weekends and holidays).  You may also contact the Distance Education Office at 256-331-5277 for assistance or stop by the Virtual Learning Center in Building 110 on the Shoals Campus.

Important Note: Please use the Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox browser when accessing course content in Blackboard. Students have reported difficulties opening some content when using the Apple Safari and Microsoft Edge browsers.
