Accessing Blackboard and the DSO Forms
Once you have received your EOU e-mail address, you will be able to sign into Blackboard. Signing into Blackboard is accomplished by using the name portion of your e-mail address (everything in front of the @) for your username and your birthdate in YYMMDD order for your password (unless you have changed it already). Once in Blackboard, on the right hand side of the screen you should see the classes you are enrolled in. (These are only visible when the instructor has made them available.) Once you have been granted accommodations, you should be able to see the class named “Disability Services Office” in this list. If it is not there, notify the Accommodations Specialist that you have not been added to the class.
Click on the class name and it will open to the announcements page. This will show any information that has been posted recently, or any instructions that need to be followed. Please get into the habit of checking them each time you log in. On the left hand side of the screen, you will see the menu that contains the links for the “Read Out Loud download” and update, the link to the “Test Scheduling Request,” the link to the “Alternative Format Agreement” that has to be signed every term, and the “Accommodations Request Form” that also needs to be completed every term.
