NetTutor is accessed through BlackBoard so students have an easy point of entry (no additional sign on needed). Melissa Colon, our wonderful Distance Education Coordinator, created a short video last fall on how to create a content area to house NetTutor. You can access the video here: https://youtu.be/DldonLj7pAc If you have any other BlackBoard related questions with NetTutor, Melissa is more than happy to assist you. Even if you don't have an online course, you can request a BlackBoard shell in order to allow your students to access NetTutor.
