Navigating Blackboard

Users are easily able to navigate within the Blackboard Learn environment. After logging in, users are automatically directed to Blackboard’s Gateway page. This provides access to all classes that faculty and students are enrolled in, the My Blackboard area, and a variety of NIU and Blackboard information.

From the Gateway (and all other areas in Blackboard), users can click the 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, as well as My Blackboard which provides one-click access to your Courses, Organizations, Settings, Help, and tools like Posts, Updates, Retention Center, and Calendar.
