Request to Link Existing WebAssign and Blackboard Accounts

By default, the first time an instructor signs in to WebAssign from BlackboardĀ®, a new WebAssign instructor account is created. If your institution has many instructors with existing WebAssign accounts, ask Customer Support to link their existing WebAssign and Blackboard accounts.

  1. Submit a request to Customer Support for a list of your school's instructor usernames.

    Identify yourself as your school's Blackboard administrator and ask for a list of WebAssign instructor usernames at your school so they can be linked to Blackboard usernames.

  2. When Customer Support provides this list, add the corresponding Blackboard username for each WebAssign instructor account.

    Do not include passwords.

    If the building block will not be made available immediately (for example, in the middle of a term), ask Customer Support also to link any new WebAssign instructor accounts for your institution.

  3. Send the correlated list back to Customer Support requesting that the accounts be linked.

Customer Support will link the corresponding Blackboard and WebAssign accounts.
