BCCC’s learning management system, Blackboard, is fully integrated with student and College data. All credit courses offered at the College, and all individuals that are provided with a College email address, are automatically created in Blackboard through a snapshot integration of the two systems. Accordingly, students who are registered for online courses receive a unique login based on their personal information that includes a combination of their names and a four-digit randomly generated number, unique to each student. The password used by students is a combination of numbers based on each student's date of birth. At Online Student Orientation, students are advised to change their password after initial login as well as change their password frequently to ensure that they are secure. The formula used for the creation of students’ usernames and default passwords is the same for both Blackboard and the student email system.
In many online courses, students are required to come on campus for testing where their photo IDs are checked, and they complete their exams during proctored conditions. At orientation, students are instructed to keep their login private and to comply with BCCC’s Code of Conduct, which addresses issues of academic honesty."
