The University uses Blackboard, one of the most widely used virtual learning environments, to support learning and teaching.
This page is accurate for students on courses accredited by the University of South Wales (formerly Glamorgan). It has not yet been updated to include advice for students whose courses are accredited by the University of Wales (i.e. courses based in Newport).
|Information on this webpage forms part of our commitment in our Student Charter|
Whether you are studying on campus, at home or somewhere else, Blackboard allows you to gain web access to many of your course materials anytime and anywhere.
To access Blackboard, you need to login to the Glamlife homepage. Blackboard is the first link under the Glamlearn section of the homepage.
Blackboard user guides
Interactive guides and tips on getting started with Blackboard are available on the Getting Started website.
We’ve embedded two video guides produced by the Blended Learning Services team below for your convenience.
We've added a list of popular social bookmarking on our pages - it is not a complete list, but the same selection of sites that the BBC have identified as being useful to a UK audience.
If you already have an account with one or more of these services, you can use the links automatically. If not, you can sign up for free with any of them.
