Courses Tab

The Courses tab contains a list of the courses you are enrolled in. Remember that your institution can rename tabs.

Exploring 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 box, click Go . 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 for.
  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. To learn more, see Course Catalog.

If your institution 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 institution may choose to use a different catalog or no catalog at all.

About Course Enrollments

Course enrollments are handled by your institution. 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 institution for assistance.

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

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

How to Hide a Course in Your List

You use the same steps to hide a course from the Courses tab or from the My Courses module on the My Institution tab. 

  1. Click the Manage icon that appears when you move your mouse pointer over the module.
