Course Catalog

The Course Catalog lists all courses offered at the school in defined categories, such as semester and subject matter.

If your school licenses community engagement, the Organization Catalog lists all organizations at the school in defined categories, such as organization type or semester availability.

The catalog allows you to search for courses or organizations using a keyword or a specific category. The links in the catalog display instructor information and a course description. You may be able to enroll, preview, or log in to a course depending on how your school customizes Blackboard Learn.

Note: Your school might to use a different catalog or no catalog at all.
