Technology Resources

You will find links to Springboard, E-Reserves (some of the courses post readings for you to download) and other resources you will need through the program.

PDF Documents

Many of your assignments, readings or notes may be in PDF format. In order to view a PDF document, you will need to download (for free) Adobe Acrobat Reader. You can access a tutorial for Adobe Acrobat Reader if you do not know how to open your PDF documents.

You will be accessing all of your core course materials from Blackboard, courtesy of Cleveland State University. Elective online courses may use the content management systems of the home partner university.

For the MPH core courses, log in to Blackboard..

Logging on to Blackboard

You will be given log-on information no later than the first day of classes. If at any time you have difficulty logging in, please contact the MPH office at 330.325.6179. If you are taking online courses based at other universities, you may need other log-on information.

Blackboard Assistance

Faculty can have access to an orientation course on Blackboard. Contact the MPH office to be enrolled. Students will find resources on Blackboard in the Start Here section of each course.

Electronic Reserves (E-Reserves)

In some of your core courses, you will have articles to read that you can download from E-Reserves from Cleveland State University. Students will be given access to the E-Reserves through their respective courses. Faculty should make arrangements with the MPH program office to have articles submitted to Cleveland State University for posting in E-Reserves.
