  • Otago Capture Browser Recommendations (Thursday, 12 May 2016)

    If you're having trouble watching Otago Capture lecture recordings:

    • On the Student Desktop computers, use Firefox.
    • On your own computer, make sure Flash is updated to at least version 19.
    • There have been reported issues with using Microsoft Edge on Windows 10, please try using Google Chrome or Firefox.

    Remember it's always best to keep your broswer and Flash Player up to date. You can update Flash on their website: http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/  

  • SafeAssign Processing Times (Friday, 29 April 2016)

    SafeAssign can take up to 48 hours to process a report at present, as it is a peak assessment period. Please take this into consideration when submitting your draft assignments.

  • New & Returning Students (Monday, 23 February 2015)

    You must log into Blackboard (and StudentMail) with your University username, which is usually five letters followed by three numbers (for example: abcde123).  You cannot log into Blackboard or Studentmail with an email address, Student ID number or ID card number, or a username from another institution.

    In general, access to Blackboard papers is granted on the first day of Semester. For most Semester 1 and Full Year papers this is Monday, 23 February.  You must complete enrolment to get access to Blackboard.

  • Can't log in? (Tuesday, 20 January 2015)

    If you are a student and you can't log in, it might mean that:
      Your username or password is wrong; or
      None of your papers are using Blackboard this semester; or
      You have not completed enrolment; or
      You are not permitted to access Blackboard resources (this may be the case if you are a debtor).

    If you are a staff member and you can't log in, it might mean that:
      Your username or password is wrong; or
      None of your papers are using Blackboard this semester.

    If you require assistance with your username/password please contact the ITS Service Desk; or use eVision to check your enrolment status if you are a student.

  • Blackboard Maintenance - Saturdays & Sundays 4.30am (Thursday, 18 December 2014)

    At 4.30am on Saturdays and Sundays there will be a short period of 10mins where Blackboard may be unavailable. We recommend that you do not attempt any tests during this time.


    This is being done to maintain the performance of Blackboard.
