  • INSTRUCTORS: It's Time to Make Your Course Available on Blackboard!

    At the beginning of each semester, instructors are required to make their courses available on Blackboard.  Enrolled students will not be able to see your course among their "My Courses" list unless you make the course available on Blackboard.


    Click the link below to access a guide on how to complete that process:

  • Web Browser for Blackboard
    It is strongly recommended that students, faculty, and staff use the Mozilla Firefox Web Browser when working with Blackboard in any capacity.

    There is a known issue with Safari (Version 11.1) affecting students and faculty. Users get an error message when submitting assignments or uploading course material to Blackboard.  This only occurs with Safari 11.1 on Mac. To avoid this error, please use the Mozilla Firefox Web Browser.
