Enable “Terms” to make your Blackboard course list more manageable
After using Blackboard for more than a year you may find that your My Courses list becomes cluttered.
The “terms” feature will set your My Courses box to show your modules under groupings such as the Academic Year when the course was taught.
Overview of a Blackboard training course
During the Blackboard Learning and Teaching Conference this year I gave an impromptu demonstration of a Blackboard course we use as part of our “Introduction to Blackboard” staff training course.

Five Blackboard Tips for students and staff
Each month our Blackboard service is used by more than 24,000 members of the University. Less than 1% of those customers contact ServiceLine with a query about the Blackboard Virtual Learning Environment. Most of these queries can be answered by referring to our web pages. Those who do raise a ticket will usually find they have received a resolution very quickly. With this in mind here are some quick tips based on queries we have been receiving lately.
- “Widescreen” mode – for students and staff
- (Un)Available courses – for students and staff
- Guest Access– for staff but benefits students
- Tidying up your course list and enabling “terms” – for students and staff
- Course Banners – for staff but benefits students
