How does an FTCC student request and gain access to SmarThinking?
SmarThinking is now readily-and easily! - available to FTCC Curriculum ("College") and Developmental Studies students via their Blackboard ("Bb") accounts. All that a student needs to do is log into his or her Blackboard account, click on the subject for which assistance is needed, and then click on "Tool" or "Course Tools." This will take the student to the SmarThinking link, which will then take the student directly to SmarThinking's Home Page and access to an e-instructor. (Pleae note: The instructor for the FTCC class for which the student is seeking assistance must enable the Tool button for this access to occur, and must then keep the Tool button enabled).
