Student Instructions for Logging in to WebCT for the First Time ONLY If You Are Given a Password

If you have never logged into WebCT before, follow these directions to set up your account.

1.  Open Internet Explorer or Netscape Communicator (must be connected to a computer that has an Internet connection)

2.  In the Address: or Location: box near the top of the screen, type in the following address:
http://webct.ccri.edu and press the Enter key on your keyboard

3. Click on Create myWebCT

4.  Fill in your personal information in the boxes provided.

5. In the second section you are prompted to make up your own WebCT ID and password. Passwords must be at least 4 characters long and can include numbers, letters or both.
IMPORTANT
: You will be the only one who knows what this user ID and password are, so write this information down immediately. Also WebCT is case sensitive, so also note if you used all capital letters, all lowercase letters or a mix of both.

Make sure you remember to put in your special question and answer in case you forget your password in the future. (NOTE: If you did not fill in an email account, do not fill in the question and answer box.)

6.  Click on the Continue button at the bottom of the window.

7.  Login with the User Name and Password you just created for yourself (remember it is case sensitive).

8. Click on the OK button at the bottom of the window

Adding A Course

Once you've set up your myWebCT account, you can add your current course(s) to your account. When your myWebCT screen opens:

1.  Click on the blue Add course button.

2. Courses are arranged in alphabetical order by course code. Click on the alphabetical range your course would fall into under Categories. For example, if you were taking a Chemistry course, you would select the C - E category.

3. Select your course from the list by clicking on it.

4. If your instructor has told you that you may self-register for the course, just click on the correct course code and the course will be automatically added to your account.

If your instructor has set up usernames and passwords for you, he or she will give you that information in class. In this case, another login box will come up and ask you to enter the  User Name and Password that your instructor has given you. This is not the same as the user name and password that you just created. If you do not have this information you need to contact your instructor. This is the only time you will need this information. (Remember this information is always case sensitive.)

5.  Once you have typed in the course User Name and Password, click on the Continue button.

6. You should now see a box telling you that the course has successfully been added to your myWebCT account. Congratulations!

You can now choose to click on Go to course to take a look at the information contained in the course or choose to Return to myWebCT Home Area.

Logging into Your myWebCT Account

Once you have established your own myWebCT account and have added your course(s), it is easy to log in again.

1.  Open Internet Explorer or Netscape Communicator (must be connected to a computer that has an Internet connection)

2.  In the Address: or Location: box near the top of the screen, type in the following address:
http://webct.ccri.edu and press the Enter key on your keyboard

3. Click on Log on to myWebCT

2. Type in the User Name and Password you created.

3.  Click on the OK button at the bottom of the screen.

3.  When your myWebCT screen opens, click on your course name listed under Courses to open your class page.

4.  To use any of the listed functions, click on the icon (each class will look different, your icons will probably not look like the ones pictured below).

Exiting from WebCT

When you are finished working in your course, you must close the browser window (either Netscape or Internet Explorer) by choosing File from the menu and Close, or clicking on the X box in the top right- hand corner of the window.

It is very important to close completely out of Netscape or Internet Explorer since someone else would be able to access your coursework using your name if you leave it open.

If you have any problems or questions about using WebCT, please call the Help Center at 825-1112.
