New Blackboard Login Get Mixed Reviews

YORK COLLEGE — CUNY welcomed students into the new semester with a different way of logging into Blackboard, the online system used by many professors to disseminate course material.

The Blackboard update took place on July 3. With this new system, CUNY has students taking a longer route to sign into Blackboard. Before, students used to log in by just using the username and password they created. Now to access Blackboard students are redirected and required to use their CUNYFirst credentials. This update is a part of CUNY’s ongoing process to further improve Blackboard called Blackboard Enhanced. With this process, students and faculty across the CUNY campuses are promised better features, according to the CUNY blackboard website.
