How to access the Blackboard Learn archive

How to Access the Archive:

Students, staff and faculty who used Blackboard Learn in the past can access their old courses in an online archive hosted by Blackboard Inc. You are not permitted to use this archive to create new courses or activities, new sites or new users.

Logging in to the Bb Learn archive has changed.  You will use your Downstate Microsoft Azure Single Sign-On (SSO) method. That's the same method that you already use to authenticate your login to email and Brightspace LMS.

Log in at:


Instead, click on the Sign in with third-party account link and choose Downstate SSO. Then sign in with your email address as username along with your current NetID password. If you are off-campus, you'll be required to use two-step authentication to verify your login.

If you require further assistance, send an email to with your name, college/program, the course subject code and course number and a brief description on what you are trying to do/access.
