Courses Tab

The Courses tab contains tools and content. Several modules include information pulled from courses specific to each user. Remember that your school can rename tabs.

About Course Enrollments

Course enrollments are handled by your school. If you are enrolled in a course but do not see it in the course list, or if you are enrolled in the incorrect course, contact your school for assistance.

You cannot delete old or unwanted courses, but you can hide them from view.

Your school controls all options in Blackboard Learn, including whether you can customize modules. If you are unable to complete the steps, contact your school for assistance.

Use the following steps to hide courses in the course list module.

  1. Click the Manage My Courses Module Settings icon that appears when you move your pointer over the module.

About the Courses Tab

 Image illustrating text below.

  1. Course Search: You can search for a course, and if allowed, preview the course. Type a keyword or text string in the text box, click Go, and the results appears on the Browse Course Catalog page.
  2. Course List: From the list, you can access any course you are enrolled in or teaching. For example, if you are a student in two courses and a teaching assistant in one course, your course list is divided into the courses you are enrolled in and the courses you are a TA in.
  3. Course Catalog: You can search the catalog for courses or organizations. Select a category link or click Browse Course Catalog to begin your search. On the Browse Course Catalog page, you can narrow your search by course name, ID, description, or instructor. Type a keyword or text string in the box, click Go, and the results appear.

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

Guests are able to browse the catalog and preview courses. Guests do not have access to the entire course. Instructors determine whether users are allowed to preview a course prior to enrollment.

Your school may choose to use a different catalog or no catalog at all.
