How to Access Blackboard through The Zone (optional)
One purpose of The Zone is to create a "one-stop" location for you to login
and access multiple systems (CLASS-Web, Blackboard, Financial Aid, Library,
etc.) of the College, reducing the multiple times required for you to login.
The first time
you do this, The Zone will take you to an External Account Synchronization page
where you need to enter your Blackboard password in order to synchronize
Blackboard with The Zone:
Enter your Blackboard username and password.
If you have not used Blackboard before, your Blackboard password is the first
two letters of your first name, followed by the first two letters of your last
name (all lowercase), followed by the last four digits of your User
Identification (“W”) Number.
For example, Maria Tina Valdez with a User Identification Number of W98765432
would log into Blackboard as:
Username: W98765432 Password: mava5432 (all lowercase letters + last four digits)
Click Save Account Information after you do this.
From now on, each time you enter The Zone with your W number and PIN and click
the Blackboard link, you will be taken directly to your My Institution page in
Blackboard where you can access your courses. The only exception is if you
change your password in Blackboard; in this case, The Zone will again ask for
your Blackboard password.
Login to Blackboard directly
You can bypass The Zone to log into Blackboard directly by going to http://clpccd.blackboard.com
or by going to the college web site and following the links to the Blackboard
login page. If you’ve used Blackboard previously, your login information will
still work. If you are new to Blackboard, use the login format above, then
change your password in Blackboard by clicking Personal Information on your My
Institution page, then click Change Password. Enter a new password, verify it,
and click Submit.
