Student FAQs about Languages in Learn

    How do I view Blackboard Learn in another language?

    You can see Blackboard Learn in different languages with language packs. You can set language packs at three levels: system, course level, and user.

    System level

    Your institution defines one language pack as the system default. This language appears if no other language packs are set at the course or user level.

    Course level

    At the course level, instructors can set a different language pack. If the language pack is enforced, everyone sees that language pack. For example, a Spanish instructor might force all users to view the course material in Spanish. If the language pack isn't enforced, you can set your language pack to another language, if available. Your language pack preference overrides the course language pack if the course language pack isn't enforced.

    User level

    At the user level, individuals may select their preferred language packs.


    Can I get help on this site in other languages?

    Yes, Blackboard translates the help for some products into other languages. To change the language you are viewing, select another language in the upper-right corner of this page.
