Explore the My Institution tab
After you log in, you land on the My Institution tab. Across the top, other tabs might be available to you.
Your interface might have different colors, logos, tabs, tools, and names that are specific to your institution. For example, your institution might rename the My Institution tab to match your institution's name or remove a tab or tool.
- My Blackboard and the user menu are available everywhere in Blackboard Learn. They give you a personalized view of your learning environment. Access the menus next to your name in the page header. The user menu provides access to your courses and personal settings, such as text size and personal information. My Blackboard provides access to due dates, users, and tools that help you connect, communicate, and collaborate with your Blackboard learning network.
- Tools: The tools on this page display information from your courses. For example, the calendar shows events for all courses.
- Modules: Modules on the My Institution tab collect information from your courses. Your institution controls which modules appear and whether you can add modules.
Use links in the modules to view information and navigate to those areas in your courses. You can collapse individual windows and drag modules to new positions on the page.
Modules you might see:
- My Courses: Access the courses you're enrolled in.
- My Announcements: Displays announcements for courses and from your institution. Announcements communicate important, time-sensitive information.
- My Tasks: Displays tasks added by instructors. You can add personal tasks when you access tasks from Tools.
- Add Module: Select to view the list of available modules, such as a dictionary, report card, and notes. Descriptions are provided in the list so that you can choose the most significant. Your institution controls whether you're allowed to add modules.
- Personalize Page: Change the color scheme of the page. Your institution controls whether you're allowed to personalize the page.
You may have access to other tabs that contain modules. For example, if your institution has access to the content management features, you have the Content Collection tab. If your institution has access to the community engagement features, they can create custom tabs and present different tabs to users based on roles.
