Blackboard Gateway

After a user has logged into Blackboard, they will be directed to Blackboard’s gateway, the customizable default entry page providing access to all classes faculty and students are enrolled in.  Users will have access to links and tabbed content areas across the top of the page, providing access to a variety of NIU and Blackboard information depending on the needs of the user.

In addition, the Gateway is comprised of modules that gather information about all of a user’s active classes and are driven by Blackboard’s Notification System.   These modules can be made visible or hidden by clicking the Add Module link.
