Can I use another username than my CPR-number

When logging on to Blackboard using WAYF, many of our students and staff uses their CPR-number as the username. However the Blackboard team has found out that it´s also possible to use your student registration number as username.

This means, that students with a post.au.dk mail address can use their student registration number as username and combine it with their password to mit.au.dk.

Older students, and lecturers, who are former students, and therefore has an asb-mail address however have to use their CPR-number as username.

Where do I find my schedule?

Under the module "Tools" on "My institution" you will find a link leading you to the lesson plans. Under "Lesson plans" please select "Studerende" and type in your matriculation number or study number.
