  • Blackboard 9.1 (Learning Management System - LMS)

    Coastal Bend College uses Blackboard 9.1 as the Learning Management System (LMS) for their online classes, as well as for hybrid, video conferencing, and even face to face.  We have provided a quicklink to the Blackboard login page at the top right of our Coastal Bend College homepage at www.coastalbend.edu .  All students who register for Coastal Bend College are automatically provided a login account to Blackboard and have been automatically enrolled into an online student orientation.  The online student orientation focuses on learning how to use the Blackboard 9.1 platform.  Students will have access to Blackboard and the online student orientation typically 24 hours after they register at Coastal Bend College.  Students must complete the online student orientation prior to the first day of class(es) to ensure that they can login to Blackboard and that they know how to submit assignments, take exams, communicate with their instructor/classmates, etc. 

     Login Information

    To login to your online class, student email account, wireless and library services, students will need to know what their username and password is.  Coastal Bend College automatically assigns a username and password for these programs.  Please review the example below to determine what your username and password is.
