Getting Started

The following are some things to keep in mind when using Blackboard Learn:

  • Your institution may disable certain tools within the application. If you encounter tools that you are unable to access, contact your institution.
  • The openness of Blackboard Learn allows instructors, leaders, and administrators the option to customize the interface. The names for some items in Blackboard Learn may differ from those that you see in the help documentation.
  • Building blocks allow your institution to integrate external applications, tools, content, and services into Blackboard Learn. Institutions decide which building blocks to install, so the tools available to you may differ from those presented in the help documentation.
