Bb Learn Accounts

Users access UH Bb Learn by using their CougarNet accounts, which are available to currently active UH students, faculty, and staff. For people who are not currently active UH students, faculty, or staff, access to UH Bb Learn is only available after they have a current PeopleSoft ID and a current CougarNet ID.

A Persons of Interest form (POI), must be completed for new instructors, TAs, or adjunct instructors returning to UH after a semester off. POI’s are completed by the department or college business office that hired the instructor or TA. POIs create or reactivate an individual's PeopleSoft ID. Most business offices are already aware of the POI process and the steps necessary to complete one. One of the following POI types is needed to receive access to Bb Learn:

00101 Consultants
00102 Future Emp
00105 Temps
00106 Future Faculty
00107 J-1 Research Scholars
00108 Guest Speakers
00200 Non-Paid Faculty
00210 Non-Paid Faculty
00220 Non-Paid Faculty
00350 Campus Program Workers
00400 Other Students
00421 Other Students
00500 Retirees
00550 Former Employee

A Sponsorship Account form must be completed to receive a CougarNet ID.  Any full-time employee can do this. It can, but does not have to be completed by Business Services office. A sponsorship account form creates a CougarNet account and ID for a person. This form is submitted through University Information Technology and is handled by the Sponsored Account Team.

PeopleSoft and the Sponsored Account Team are two separate entities apart from Blackboard Learn. However, a POI must be processed before a sponsored account can be created.
