How are accounts created?

Accounts on Blackboard are generated from three sources: 

  • Students accounts are generated from the main Student Records system (Quercus+).
  • Staff accounts are automatically created from the Human Resources database (Core HR)
  • Temporary accounts can be organised where necessary (eg. temporary staff, external examiners, visiting lecturers). These accounts can be organised by contacting ISS via servicedesk@nuigalway.ie
