How to Access Blackboard for your UCLA Extension Wine Course

Blackboard (Bb) is a private online network that the UC system uses for delivering its courses.  Basically it is like a private website for each course.  Blackboard is where I manage my UCLA Extension wine courses.  On Blackboard I post course files, notes, updates, videos, links, assignments and tests.  It is essential for students in these courses to get access to Blackboard …

Sometimes students have difficulty accessing Blackboard for the first time.  Please see the instructions below for accessing Blackboard.  Please send me an email if these instructions do not resolve your issues.

1) Go to the Blackboard log in page

2) Enter your user name and password

Your Username and Password are sent to you via UCLA Extension Blackboard at the beginning of the course.  This email will be sent to the email address that you provided UCLA Extension when you registered for the course.  Sometimes you need to look in your junk or spam folder to locate the email. The system sends out thousands of emails a day and they can get flagged by certain systems/email service providers.


If you can not locate the Blackboard email with your Username and Password, please send me an email.  I can look up your Username and the Email the Blackboard system has on file for you.  Please note – I do not have access to your Password and I can not generate a new one for you.

Email address is INCORRECT
Once I have sent you your Username and Email, check to be sure the Email address is correct.  Stop here and contact Blackboard support if it is incorrect.  Return to the Blackboard log in page above and find the link that says “Help” and send an email to the Blackboard IT department.

Email address is CORRECT
If the Email address is correct, return to the Blackboard log in page above.  Find the link that says “Forgot Password”.  Follow the instructions to have a new Password sent to you.  It will be sent to the Email address Blackboard has on file for you.
