Make Blackboard Course Available to Students


All academic courses are created automatically in Blackboard when they are added in Banner by the Registrar. By default courses are set as "unavailable to students", which means only instructors can see the course contents. Instructors can make their courses available when they are ready to make their site's content public to enrolled students.
