Courses vary in design depending on the instructor and the institution, but some common elements exist.
You can read this page in its entirety, or click the Table of Contents icon in the upper right and choose a topic that interests you.
If your institution licenses content management, you will see a Content Collection tab. If your institution licenses community engagement, the Community and Services tabs are available.
The course menu is the panel on the left side of the interface that contains links to all top-level course areas. Instructors can also provide links to the tools page, individual tools, websites, course items, and module pages. Instructors control the content and tools available on the course menu.
Instructors can customize the style of the course menu. They can change the color, add subheaders and dividers, and choose buttons or text for the links. These customizations create variations in the look and organization of your courses.
While inside one of your courses, you can conveniently access all of the courses you are enrolled in. Access the contextual menu next to the house icon. Click another course title. If the same page you are currently viewing in the course exists in the next course, that is where you will land. The most recently visited course is listed first.
For example, if you are viewing the announcements page in one course and click another course in the contextual menu, you are taken to that course's announcements page.
Double-click the video to enlarge the viewing area.
By default, a link to a course's Home Page appears in the course menu, but your instructor or institution can change this. The Home Page contains modules with information about course events and notifications. The modules function similar to the modules on the My Institution tab. Use the links in modules to navigate to areas in your courses, and add, delete, and rearrange modules. To learn more, see Modules.
Your institution can rename modules and determine which are available.
Blackboard Learn is web-based, so printing is handled through your web browser in most cases. If the content is an attached file, such as a Microsoft® Word document, that program handles the printing.
Most browsers have a "Help" option explaining more about printing.
If you need assistance printing course content, contact your institution's computing help desk.
You can edit the paging options to specify how many items appear on a page in Blackboard Learn. For example, you can decide how many forums appear on the main discussion board page.
Show All displays all items and causes the Next Page and Previous Page controls to disappear. For best performance, do not use Show All with a very large number of items.
Use the following steps to edit the paging options:
