Organizations behave like courses and contain tools that enable members to communicate efficiently. You can post information, have discussions, and share documents. Organizations are an ideal place to connect with other users with whom you share interests or extra-curricular activities. Your institution controls who can create organizations.

Find and join organizations

When you first log in to Blackboard Learn, select the Community tab. You can search for organizations or browse the full list of available organizations in your institution. A list of organizations you've already joined also appears on this page.

After you search or browse for organizations, a list of matching and available organizations appears. To join an available organization, open the organization's menu and select Enroll.

You can select an organization to views its home page. You need to be a member before you can see all of the content and tools available in an organization.

Manage an organization

If you're an organization leader, you can manage an organization the same way you manage a course. These topics describe how to manage a course, but the information also applies to organizations.
