The Roster tool, available to students in the Course Tools area, allows users to view a searchable list of students enrolled in a course.

Instructors wishing to access a list of users enrolled in a course should access the Users page in the Groups and Users section of the Control Panel. To learn more, see Searching for Users in a Course.

The Roster pulls information from the system's Personal Information tool. Students can access their personal information from the Tools panel of any tab, or from the Settingslink located inside the My Blackboard global navigation panel in the Blackboard header. Within this tool, students can choose which information is available to the user directory and the course roster.

The Blackboard administrator at your school can make the personal information, user directory, or roster tools unavailable.
