What is Pipeline?

Pipeline is a web portal used by Stevens to help the campus manage eMail, calendars, courses, contact lists, duck bill accounts, etc. It contains a long list of links to other services provided by Stevens as well. Similarly, almost all Stevens web account services use the Pipeline user name and password combination for authentication.

What is eLearn?

eLearn is a Blackboard service used by Stevens to help the campus manage courses. Instructors can design eLearn modules for their classes and use eLearn to provide exams, assignments, mail, discussions, chats, calendars, course notes and material, web links, and more. More information about the eLearn system can be found at Elearn. The most important part of becoming familiar with eLearn is knowing that the user name and password are synchronized with Pipeline.

If you change your Pipeline password, your eLearn password will be changed as well. To that same password.

What is my user name?

Pipeline user names are typically made up of the first letter of your first name and the last seven letters of your last name. For example if your name is Tom Smithsonian the user name would be tsmithso. However it is possible that that name is used by another member of the campus in which case the last letter will be replaced by a number.

Step 1 - Open the Request Page
