The Course Creation module allows administrators to make course creation functions available to users, require users to request that a course be created, or prevent users from creating courses. If users are allowed to create courses, the Course Creation module appears on the Courses tab.

If your institution has access to community engagement features, administrators can make this module available to users with specific roles, such as faculty members, on the Module Properties page.

Blackboard recommends not allowing all users to create courses for security reasons. If all users are allowed to create courses, Blackboard strongly recommends prohibiting instructors from editing user information. Allowing all users to create courses and allowing the instructor, which could be the person who created the course, to edit user information is a serious security concern.
