Generate a Username and Password to Access Visible Body’s Course Pack in Blackboard (students) 

There are two ways your school may provide the Visible Body Course Pack your professor has assigned for your course:

  1. Your school may require you to purchase the Course Pack.
  2. Your school may provide free access to the Course Pack via your campus network.

Purchasing

There are three ways to purchase your Visible Body Course Pack:

  1. Use the link provided by your professor.
  2. Select any Course Pack content in your course and select “Need a Username and Password?” on the login page.
  3. Purchase your Course Pack at the campus bookstore if your professor makes this option available. (If you do this, skip this article and read Activate Visible Body’s Course Pack in Blackboard to use your bookstore purchase.)

In all three cases, you’ll make a purchase, receive a username and password, and use it to activate the Visible Body Course Pack for your Blackboard course.

Gaining Free Access
