Blackboard is the academic suite College of Western Idaho (CWI) instructors use to manage their classes and enhance learning. Your instructor may post supplemental resources, such as pictures, videos, or links to relevant web pages.

Access to Blackboard is essential for success in your courses. You will receive important updates and complete tasks, such as taking exams and quizzes, using this suite.

How to Logon

  • Using an Internet browser, go to the CWI Blackboard site at https://blackboard.cwidaho.cc.
  • As your username, enter your student domain account username (e.g., johnsmith).
  • As your password, enter your custom domain account password.

If you cannot successfully log on to Blackboard, first attempt to recover access to your account. If that does not fix your access, please contact the Help Desk. Contact the Help Desk
