Blackboard Help


Institutions have organizations of different types, from academic to special interest. Organizations in Blackboard Learn contain content and tools to keep you informed and in touch with other members of your organization.

An organization looks exactly like a course, including:

  • A menu similar to the course menu.
  • A home page.
  • Tools similar to a course's tools, like announcements and discussions.

The organization leader and your institution manage organization enrollments. If enabled, you may self enroll. Contact the organization leader or your institution about enrollment. After you are enrolled, only the leader or an administrator can unenroll you.
