Q: I registered to a course, but why I cannot see it when
login to Blackboard?
A: There are a few reasons that you
can't see a registered course in Blackboard:
Can I modify the course list in my Blackboard home page? I
do not want old courses showing there?
YES! You can modify the courses listed on your
Blackboard home page,(the first page that you see after you
login.) If you want to display only current
semester courses, you can actually "hide" the courses you do not want to list on
the home page. Here is how: With "Home" tab selected, you can see a
little pencil icon usually on the top-right side, in "My Courses"
window. If you put cursor on it, it will read as Modify the module: My Courses.
Hit on the button, "Customize: My Courses" page will be displayed. You
can deselect the courses that you don't want to be displayed, or choose the
items that you want to be displayed in your course view, press Submit to have
the changes take effect.
You can also modify your Blackboard home page
contents and layout by clicking on
or Modify Layout
button on the top-right corner when you are in Home tab of Blackboard pages.
