Changing Your Blackboard Password

  • The university uses Swinburne Identity Management System (SIMS), which allows students to to access information from commonly used Swinburne University applications - such as Blackboard - using a single username and password.
  • All new SAO students will need to first go the the ITS Password Assistance site and set their SIMS password. This will automatically change your Blackboard password as well.
    • To log on MySwinburne and set your SIMS password, your users name will be your 7 digit Swinburne student ID number, and your password will be your date of birth in DDMMYY format.
  • Returning SAO students should be able to use their old SIMS password to access Blackboard.
  • If at any stage during the semester you wish to change your Blackboard password, you will need to return to the web site above and change your SIMS password.
