Two-factor authentication is now required to access eCampus, Portal and other WVU systems. Set up is easy. Be ready to install the free Duo Mobile app on your phone. Call 304-293-4444 or visit an ITS Service Center in the Mountainlair or Lyon Tower if you need help.
Using the Course Availability tool in eCampus, instructors may now open their courses to students as many as seven days before the official start date indicated in STAR. Faculty who don’t want courses opened early may choose not to use this feature. Instructions are at Course Availability.
Previously, and at the request of the Faculty Senate, all courses were opened to students three days before the STAR date. ITS worked with Blackboard on customization to offer faculty this option. As part of the collaboration, WVU Online provided funding to support the change.
Please direct questions or requests for help to:
Students will be unable to submit Turnitin assignments, and instructors will be unable to grade submitted documents from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., Tuesday, July 10.
Turnitin is a cloud-based application, and the vendor determines when to make performance improvements and update hardware. Instructors who rely on Turnitin may want to adjust deadlines that had been set for July 10.
We appreciate your patience. Please direct any questions to ITSHelp@mail.wvu.edu or (304) 293-4444.
Some iPhone and iPad users may not be able to log into the Blackboard mobile app (eCampus) using push notifications from the Duo Mobile app. If you have this problem, use the passcode option.

Instructors: The latest version of Apple’s Safari web browser returns "failed to submit assignment" errors when students submit work to eCampus. Until the issue is resolved, please advise your students to use Firefox or Google Chrome for online coursework.
