The Learning Management System (LMS)

The Learning Management System (LMS), also called Blackboard, is the University’s online learning platform where you can find resources for your studies.

Accessing the LMS

Your unit of study website is where you will submit assignments and access information and communications for your units of study. You will be able to access this by logging in to the LMS.

Logging in

Once you have received your letter of confirmation and UniKey you will have access to the LMS.

Use your UniKey and password to log in to the LMS online.

If you want to log in on your mobile device, you can use the Sydney University Mobile app to access the LMS.

If you have any problems logging in, contact the ICT Helpdesk using the online form.

Logging out

Make sure you log out and close the browser window when you are finished.

Your session will time out after 45 minutes of no activity. Typing into a box or field in a discussion thread will not be registered as activity unless you are regularly saving drafts.

Supported browsers

Use the most up-to-date version of a current popular browser, such as:

You can find a list of Blackboard’s currently supported browsers on their website.

We recommend you install two browsers on your computer as this will give you an alternative if problems arise.

Browsers behave differently with some software and plugins. Some newer or mobile browser versions are not currently certified to work with the LMS. This may be because the LMS software was designed before the browser, or the browser has not yet been fully tested with the LMS.
