Welcome to SHSU Online! If you are like most new online students, you are ready to begin your online education but may also have a few questions prior to your first semester. No problem, we are here to help!
Your Online Classes Are Delivered Through Blackboard
While you may login to Blackboard prior to the start of the semester, your online classes will not be listed until the first day of class. To login to Blackboard use your SHSU user name and password: http://shsu.blackboard.com
Getting Started in Your Online Class
Prior to beginning your first day of online classes, it is important to make sure that you understand the technical requirements. Please review the technical requirements for online learning. If you are new to Blackboard, take a minute to work through the "Getting Started" section of Blackboard. To do this, login to http://shsu.blackboard.com and click the "Getting Started" tab in the top right-hand corner of your screen.
