Blackboard Online Noncredit Courses

Prince George's Community College uses Blackboard (Bb) as the web-based program that serves as the College's online classroom. Blackboard offers a password-protected virtual classroom with email, course content, calendar, a discussion board, and other course tools standard in an online course. The Blackboard online classroom can be accessed over the internet at any time of the day or night. You will be able to participate entirely from the comfort of your home or office at times that are most convenient to you.

These are all instructor-led courses. They are not self-paced. The entire class works together on the weekly lessons. The discussion board feature allows for interactions between students and the instructor.

The start dates and lengths of these courses vary from course to course. Although a lot of the coursework is located in the web classroom, a textbook purchase may be required for some courses.

All courses require internet access, email, and a browser, Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome are recommended. You must also have a working Owl Link account at PGCC to access a Blackboard course.

Get Started with Blackboard

When: Noncredit online classes using Blackboard will be available four days before the course officially begins, giving everyone time to work through any possible access problems.  

How: On the start date of your course, log into the Blackboard website at http://pgcconline.blackboard.com.

On your "Welcome" screen, you will see the course(s) in which you are enrolled listed in the box labeled "My Courses." Click on the course name to enter your Blackboard course.

Note: This web address does not contain "www." Type your Owl Link account information into the Blackboard login box. 

Note: IPMA-HR students use the login information received from the IPMA-HR. They do not use Owl Link account information to log into Blackboard.

What if I have problems logging into my online class?

If you are unable to log in to Blackboard, contact your instructor by email or voicemail. If your instructor is unable to help you, please contact eLearning Services.
