Important Note for Faculty - Make your Blackboard course visibile to students
Students will not see your course until it is made "available." To do this, go into your course in Blackboard. Once there, from the control panel on the left menu, click Customization > Properties. Find "Set Availability" and select Yes . Scroll down and click Submit.
- Blackboard has been updated to include the Content Management System (CMS). More information will follow in the near future.
