Q. I am a new staff member, how do I access Blackboard Learn?

A. To access Blackboard Learn, you use your Trinity computer account username and password to login at http://mymodule.tcd.ie. Note that it can take up to 48 hours after registering with HR before you can gain access to Blackboard Learn.

Staff who are entitled to use the IT services in Trinity will be provided with a Trinity computer account username and an initial password after they have been registered by HR.  You can also obtain these details by calling into the IT Service Desk and presenting your Trinity ID card. If HR and/or IT Services cannot provide you with a username and password then your School Office may need to contact HR to ensure you have been setup with the appropriate HR pay scale or visitor code, to make sure you are entitled to a Trinity computer account.

Q. I cannot login to mymodule.tcd.ie – what should I do?

A. First check if you can access other Trinity College websites, such as http://elib.tcd.ie, using the same Trinity username and password as you are using to login to http://mymodule.tcd.ie. If you cannot access other Trinity services then you will need to reset your password as follows:
