Blackboard Access

The ELATE fellowship uses Blackboard for course materials, discussion boards, and other interactive learning throughout the year. You will be expected to spend about one hour a week on this platform interacting with your class members and faculty. The address to access the course is https://partners.dcollege.net/. You must allow pop-up windows and have JavaScript and cookies enabled in your web browser to access the site.  You should also install a current version of the Java plug-in for your browser.

If you forget your username or password, you will need to contact the online learning team at Drexel to get your password reset. Their email address is olt@drexel.edu and they will be happy to assist you with that issue. The ELATE staff does not have access to passwords, or the ability to change them.
