4.     On the next sign in screen (with a picture of the Villanova Church) enter your userID@villanova.edu and password and click “Sign in”. You should then be taken into Blackboard.

Note:  When you log out of Blackboard you will be asked to end your single sign-on session. Clicking the “End SSO Session” button will also sign you out of any application using SSO authentication such as Office 365 and Outlook Webmail.
