My Blackboard provides users with one location to view and take action on their critical academic information. It aggregates information from across the Blackboard Learn system for a user.
Some of the information in My Blackboard is available to users in other locations of Blackboard Learn, such as the Notifications Dashboard and My Grades. My Blackboard collects all key information that contribute to a user's success and presents it in one, easy to access location.
Users are introduced to My Blackboard with a login overlay when the user first enters Blackboard Learn. This overlay identifies the tools available to the user in My Blackboard and shows the user how to find them.
My Blackboard tools are accessed from a global navigation menu at the top of every page. The menu consists of links and tools that give users direct access to the information they need.
My Blackboard can't be disabled. You can enable and disable some, but not all, of the tools in My Blackboard. Some of the tools collect information that is available with Blackboard Learn, such as user grades, and cannot be disabled.
