Helpful beginning-of-the-semester notes

  1. Students are added to course shells two days before the semester begins.

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

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

  4. If you are a continuing student you are likely to see your courses from the previous semester.
    • See the Getting Started module below to learn how to hide old course shells.
    • Instructors can deactivate a course when it is over, and you will not see deactivated courses.

  5. All members of the university community should use the Chrome web browser with Blackboard:
    Download Chrome

  6. 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:
    http://www.wpunj.edu/helpdesk

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