Access to Courses
You will be able to access your courses and tech support online from the RN-to-BSN Student Knowledge Center using an ID and password that are provided to you when you are accepted into the program. To access your courses online, choose Epic Login for nursing courses or Blackboard Login for other courses. You will need to have your Ohio ID (OAK ID) and password (provided when you enrolled in the program). If you do not have a username, have forgotten your username or password, or are experiencing problems accessing your course, please fill out the Student Support Form.
- Confirm that your system is compatible with Blackboard by going to www.ohio.edu/oit/bbsupport/ and selecting the browser checker or go there directly.
- You will need some additional free software for enhanced web browsing. Ensure that you download the free versions of the software.
- At a minimum, you must have Microsoft Office 2003, XP, 2007 or OpenOffice. Microsoft Office is the standard office productivity software utilized by faculty, students, and staff. Microsoft Word is the standard word processing software, Microsoft Excel is the standard spreadsheet software, and Microsoft PowerPoint is the standard presentation software. Copying and pasting, along with attaching/uploading documents for assignment submission, will also be required.
If you do not have Microsoft Office, you can check with the bookstore to see if they have any student copies.
