Every semester, a Blackboard course site is automatically created for each course offered by Ohio University. Although students are automatically loaded to each course site two (2) weeks before the start date, a course remains inaccessible to students until the instructor opens it. Because instructors are not required to use the LMS, some course sites are never opened. If in doubt, students should check with the instructor to confirm that a course will, or will not, make use of Blackboard.
