Resources & Services
Regent University utilizes Blackboard, a sophisticated, but user-friendly web-based communication platform that allows you to access your classroom from anywhere in the world that has the Internet. Blackboard is an information gateway that permits you to access your course materials, check the grade book, submit your assignments, monitor your progress and participate in discussions with professors and students.
Wimba is a classroom collaboration software that works with Blackboard to create a live virtual classroom. Students and the professor login at a predetermined time for the class session. Using a microphone and the Internet, the professor can give a lecture, go through a PowerPoint presentation and answer students' questions.
Students register for courses and manage their accounts and information entirely online through Genisys. It contains a secure area for students and faculty to register online, view accounts and pay bills, check grades and transcripts, and update personal information.
Each student also has access to his or her individualized Regent home page. This home page, or portal, can be customized to display relevant information and provides single sign-on to Blackboard, Genisys and Regent email.
Upon registering for classes, Regent issues each student his or her own email account. Students can access this account online and manage their email here.
The Help Desk is a part of Regent's Information Technology department. Visit the Help Desk with your questions about Blackboard™, email, Genisys or any other Regent University computer system. In the Help Desk section you will also find links to documentation and frequently asked questions.
