All participants in a Blackboard course must have campus sponsored documentation to be added to the course.  

Faculty/Staff Access:

This form is used to provide access to SUNY Cortland instructors, supplemental instruction leaders, tutors and assistants with student auditing level access to a Blackboard course.  Observers do NOT have editing or faculty level access.

Co-Instructor Authorization (Web-Based Form)
Department chairs and instructors will use this form to authorize multiple instructors for a course. This will grant access to the course in Blackboard, in addition to listing the instructor as a co-instructor on the official schedule.

Embedded Librarian (Email)
Embedded librarians are integrated information experts that offer more direct research assistance to groups of students than the typical one-shot instruction session, often over the course of an entire semester. Librarians can be added to a Blackboard section by emailing Design Help.


Student Access:

TA/GA Confidentiality Agreement  (Web Based Form)
