Blackboard Courses Automatically Created for Spring 2020

Posted: 3/12/2020

In an effort to make it as easy as possible for faculty who aren't using Blackboard in their teaching but may wish to do so as they alter their course delivery due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, all Blackboard courses that have not yet been requested by faculty for the spring 2020 semester will be created and set to be unavailable to students by default. Faculty not previously using Blackboard but who choose to now do so will be able to simply login to Blackboard and access their automatically created course(s). Faculty who are already using Blackboard may see additional Blackboard courses in their list of courses and can choose to hide them.

How to Hide Additional Blackboard Courses

From within the Courses view, look to the right of the title (if in list view) and click on the ellipses (...). Then select Hide course.

To show hidden courses, select the Hidden from me filter and then repeat the same process, but instead select the option to Show course.
