Blackboard Tips

Instructors:  Remember to make your course available for student viewing.  Here are the steps:

  • Open the course within Blackboard
  • Go to the Control Panel
  • Select Customization
  • Select Properties
  • Change the Available marker to Yes
  • Click Submit

Students:  If you do not see your course in Blackboard, it is because your instructor has not yet made it available to you.  Please note:  your instructors have the option to use Blackboard, it is not required, so some of your courses may never appear within Blackboard.
