It is recommended that you re-run the set up process on ALL of your devices at the beginning of each semester to receive any new security updates.

At BW, you will use wēpa (We Print Anywhere) “Jacket Print” kiosks, conveniently located throughout the campus, for your printing needs. The systems provides you with a wide variety of access, upload, and print options that support mobility and convenience.
A wēpa account was already created for you. To print documents directly from your personal computer go to: www.wepanow.com/printapp and download the program. Then, you will be able to queue jobs to the system and print at any kiosk. Once you arrive at any kiosk, simply swipe your Jacket Express card (or enter your user name and password on the screen) to log in. Select your document and print. You'll even get $10 in free Virtual Funds each semester toward your print costs. (Note: Those funds are loaded in your wēpa account, not on your Jacket Express Card.) There's also a wēpa mobile app for your iOS or Android mobile device that you can download for free!
Your print options include:
- USB – Insert a USB drive at the kiosk, select file, print.

"Blackboard" is BW's academic software that provides an online platform for you and your instructors to interact. You will have a separate Blackboard course site for each of your classes. It will have links to the course syllabus, grades, and more. Some instructors will use Blackboard to share course documents, post assignments, host discussions, and collect homework. You can access Blackboard by going to bb.bw.edu or via the "MyBW" portal at: my.bw.edu.
Something new on the BW campus this
year is Extron's "ShareLink." These
wireless devices have been installed in
many of the classrooms around campus. It
allows instructors and students to
wirelessly share content from their
mobile computers to the classroom screen
(using BW WiFi). No longer will you need
to go to the podium and log in to make a
presentation. You can share content
right from your seat - PowerPoint, Word
docs, photos, websites... anything
that's on your computer! It's quick and
easy to access using these instructions:
To help you located rooms that have the ShareLink device installed, look for a sticker that says "ShareLink Enabled" and an instruction card attached to the podium. There's one installed in the Cyber Cafe that you can use with friends and classmates!
