Every class you take, whether online or traditional, will have a link to it in Blackboard. Blackboard is the platform Ivy Tech uses to give you access to class syllabi, assignments, and grades. There is also an email-like function in it for student/instructor communication. You do not have to login to Campus Connect to use Blackboard. There is a link to access Blackboard directly on the Campus Connect login page. You may also bookmark the Blackboard login page: https://online.ivytech.edu/

After signing in, you will see the links to your current classes. Simply click on the link for the class in which you need to work. NOTE: You will not see your traditional classes until the first day that class is scheduled to meet.
