Individual Courses


  1. Upon entering an individual Blackboard course, students and faculty will have access to the Course Menu, providing links to course content, tools, and a student’s grades.  The Course Menu is fully customizable and is administered by the course instructor(s).
  2. Faculty members will also have access to the Control Panel, located directly under the Course Menu.  Here the faculty member will be able to manage their course through a variety of menu areas including:  the Content Collection, Course Tools, Evaluation, Grade Center, Users and Groups, Customization, and Packages and Utilities.
  3. Announcements is the course entry page by default and provides a means for faculty to communicate with students in real time. Announcements is a great tool to use for reminders, followup from class discussion, sharing extraneous material, etc.
