Welcome to English 301 (Science Fiction)

Blackboard Tutorial Videos

These Demonstration videos will show you actual screen captures to help you learn what you need to know to navigate English 337. The videos are designed to be viewed in order, but it's perfectly fine to skip to the one you need the most, and it's also fine to go back and view them again, as many times as you need to. The videos may take a while to start, especially if you have a slow connection, so please be patient.

1. Registering on the CUNY Portal (about 2:30 minutes)--in order to use Blackboard, you need to have an account on the CUNY Portal, with a username and password. If you already have that account, you can feel free to skip this video.
2. Logging in to Blackboard (about 3 minutes)--once you have a portal account, you need to know how to log in to Blackboard. If you've used Blackboard before, and you're sure your username and password work fine, you can feel free to skip this video.
3. Navigating Blackboard (about 8 minutes)--this video is longer, and contains more specific information about this course. Even if you've taken other Distance Learning courses before, it's a good idea to watch this one.

If you're ready to just login to Blackboard, without any tutorial, you can go right to the Blackboard Login Page (https://blackboard-doorway.cuny.edu/).
