Blackboard Link Issues

Hello UIW Community,

Users are experiencing issues accessing Blackboard via the blackboard.uiwtx.edu link.

Workaround: Navigate to Blackboard via Cardinal Apps.

  • Log into Cardinal Apps
  • Click the BlackBoard Learn icon
  • This will automatically log you into the site

Workaround 2: Use drop down at the Bottom of the blackboard.uiwtx.edu site

  • Change the drop down from “Sign in with Third Party Account”
  • Select “Log in with Cardinal Apps”

Direct links will slowly start to not work properly, as Cardinal Apps is the preferred method to get to the site.

If you are getting an error while heading through Cardinal Apps, please head to the Cardinal Apps homepage at https://apps.uiw.edu and click on your name at the top of the page > Sign out. Sign back in and try again.

If you have any questions or need further assistance, please contact the Help Desk @ 210-829-2721.
