How can I test Blackboard integrations as student?
To test integrations as a student, you should request a secondary NetID.
Sometimes it is helpful to test integrations in Blackboard (e.g., Panopto, Respondus, VoiceThread, etc.) from the perspective of a student.
There are three levels of access in Blackboard:
- Guest Access: Individual content pieces in any course can be made accessible to any user. No access to tools is allowed by guests
- Student Preview: each instructor can view their course as student. Allows access to Blackboard native tools, such as Assignments and Discussion Board.
- Secondary NetID: a new login to Blackboard that is a separate account and can be added to any course as student with full access to other tools/systems.
Please create a secondary NetID for my UIC account with portal access, so I can conduct advanced testing in Blackboard. While I do have student preview in my Blackboard courses, I also need to test cloud integrations from a non-instructor account.
Your secondary NetID will have a separate password. If you want to change a password on a secondary NetID, follow the instructions here: https://accc.uic.edu/services/security/password-mgmt/secondary-netid/
