Users have a variety of ways to customize the look and feel
of Blackboard. These customizations will determine what information will appear
within Blackboard and are dependent upon each user’s preferences.
After logging into Blackboard, the landing page
is the Blackboard Gateway where users have access to all of their
enrolled courses. In addition, the Gateway
is comprised of other modules that gather information about all of a user’s
active classes and are driven by Blackboard’s NotificationSystem. These modules can be made visible or hidden
by clicking the Add Module
Clicking the Personalize Page link, will allow a user to choose from a variety
of color themes. Once the desired
modules have been selected, a user can re-order the modules by a simple
“drag-and-drop” technique (click and hold the left mouse button, drag to a new
location, and release the mouse).
