Welcome to FIT Blackboard!
You can access Blackboard (Bb) with your FIT username and password at http://fitnyc.open.suny.edu
As long as your course is listed in Banner with you named as the instructor, your course will appear in Blackboard. Look for your courses under “My Courses” (once you log in).
Blackboard tutorials are available below or in Blackboard. To access the tutorials in Bb, look for “Blackboard Faculty Resources” under “My Organizations.” This will point you to the tutorials we recommend.
If you need assistance with Blackboard, call the Open SUNY help desk (open 7 days per week) at 1-844-673-6786. If you are having trouble with your FIT Username and Password, call IT for FIT at 212-217-4357.
Here is a Welcome Video to Get Oriented:
Managing Users in Your course:
Blackboard syncs with Banner, FIT’s registration system. Any student who is registered for your course will appear on your Blackboard roster.
If you would like to make any changes to your roster, such as adding or removing guests from your course, or changing a user’s access or role, contact Lynn Kelly at email@example.com.
