  • Upcoming BioSig-ID Changes [EDITED 2/3/2017] (Friday, February 3, 2017)

    Faculty and Students,

    Due to unforseen technical issues, the upcoming BioSig changes (particularly, course-level validation) will be postponed until Wednesday, February 08, 2017. This means that as of now, online course sections will continue to use BioSig-ID validation for access to select course items including (but not limited to) Bb Learn tests.

    Starting Wednesday, 02/01/2017 Friday, 02/03/2017 Wednesday, 02/08/2017, there will be changes in the use of BioSig-ID in online course sections withing Blackboard (Bb) Learn. The changes are as follows:

    1. The BioSig-ID Weekly Check-In piece in online course sections will no longer be required. In its place...
    2. all online course sections will validate BioSig-ID passwords upon entry. This means, when you click on the name of an online course to enter that online course within Bb Learn, you will have to use your BioSig-ID password to get into that online course.
    3. All online course sections will continue to validate BioSig-ID passwords in select Bb course items including (but not limited to) Bb Learn Tests.

    Students, if you're taking at least one online course and have not yet set up your BioSig-ID password yet, please set up your BioSig-ID password by following the instructions below:

    1. Log in to the Bb Learn system as you normally do.
    2. In your list of courses (in the My Courses box), you will see a course called BioSig-ID Enrollment. Click on BioSig-ID Enrollment to enter the course.
    3. In the BioSig Enrollment course, carefully read the instructions under BioSig-ID Introduction and watch the demo video below the BioSig-ID Enrollment Link to begin your BioSig-ID enrollment process.

    If you have trouble and need help with setting up your BioSig password, you can go to http://biosig-alcorn.zendesk.com for assistance.
