Navigating Blackboard

To navigate Blackboard, use the course menu on the left of your course site. Most of them are self explanatory--but you can find brief descriptions below.


Some links an instructor offers can take you to a sublist of links. Many instructors put the syllabus, contact information, class policies and such under Course Information. They generally put content files (handouts, PowerPoint files, etc.) under Course Documents. However, your instructor may have a different naming scheme. The key to early success is to navigate your course thoughtfully and contact your instructor as soon as possible with your questions and concerns.


Note: Instructors may customize their Blackboard course sites to meet individual class needs. Some of these navigational links may not appear and additional ones could be present (i.e. Discussion Board, Journal)
