Standard Practices

  • Students are added to course shells the day before the semester begins.

  • Students will only see courses that have been activated by the instructor.

  • Not all instructors use Bb and you are not likely to see all your courses.

  • If you are a continuing student you are likely to see your courses from the previous semester. Instructors can deactivate a course when it is over, and you will not see deactivated courses. As a service to students with incompletes we do not batch deactivate courses until six weeks into the semester.

  • Some instructors merge courses sections. This means that s/he will have us divert students from sections -02 and -03 into section -01 (for example). If you are registered for section -03 but only see section -01 this is likely this is the course shell your instructor wants you to use, but ask the instructor to be safe!.

  • Please refer questions regarding course content (where is the test?) to your instructor, but questions involving use of Blackboard (how do I reply to a discussion board post?) should be directed to the Online Help Desk:

  • All questions are welcome -- don't be shy!
