Online Learning Assistance


WITC uses Blackboard for our online classes. If you have previously taken a WITC class using Blackboard, please go to and click “Blackboard” (located in the upper right corner). You will then see the Blackboard login screen. Your Username is always your WITC student ID.


Your default password for Blackboard is the first two letters of your first name + the first two letters of your last name + the last four digits of your social security number (all lowercase letters). If you have logged in to a computer at a WITC location and changed your network password, that same password will now be your Blackboard password.


If you encounter problems with your username and password, contact the WITC help desk as instructed here: If you would like more information on your course/program software specifications, click here.


Please do not expect your class(es) to be available for access until the official start date.
