What is CAS?

CAS is an authentication system, originally created by Yale University, which provides a trusted way for an application to authenticate a user. The Stonehill IT department has implemented the Jasig open source CAS software to enable true single signon between applications. This means that once you log in through CAS using your Stonehill username and password you will automatically be signed on to other CAS enabled applications. As of August 1, 2014, the following Stonehill services are CAS enabled: eLearn, Atomic Learning, the My Stonehill mobile ap, and Manage My Hill Card.

What is a Profile in Blackboard and how can I use it?

Your profile will allow you to share selected information about yourself with others. Profiles have privacy options, so you can keep your profile hidden, or make it available to everyone at Stonehill including your students.  If you choose not to create a profile at first login you may access it later.

To create or edit your profile, go to the global navigation menu in the upper right corner of eLearn and click the down chevron to display the menu.  Next, select the photo icon in the upper left of the dropdown menu. The profile editor options are now visible and can be modified or deleted. Once you are satisfied with the changes click the “Save” button in the upper right corner of the page.  Please watch our video overview for detailed directions.

How do I print something from eLearn?

Because eLearn is web-based, printing is handled through whatever internet browser you are using. Sometimes you can right-click the area that you want to print and look for a message similar to "Print This Frame."

Most browsers have a Help option that can explain more about printing.   If the course content is an attached file, or a link to a file, such as a Word document, you can open the document and print it from that program.
