FAQ

How do I log on to Blackboard?

Username is your AU ID (e.g. AU123456) or your student registration number.

Password is the same as for mit.au.dk (Self-service).

How do I create an external user?

In order for an external user to access Blackboard, he/she has to register in AU systems. When this is done, a Blackboard administrator can grant access to Blackboard and the relevant courses.

See how an external Danish user is granted access in this guide (Danish only).

See how an external foreign user is granted access in this guide.

If you are a Blackboard administrator, you can find a guide under General instructions on how to grant access to an external user in Blackboard. The guide is called "Guide til TAP'er - oprettelse af eksterne brugere (som har et AU ID)" and is in Danish only.

How do I add existing users to a course?

As an instructor at a course, you can add additional users to your course. This could e.g. be co-teachers (Instructor), teaching assistants or students who want to follow the course but do not want to take an examination (not enrolled via STADS).
