Use the accordion for quick access to our most used tutorials. 

When building the course, you want to organize the materials in a way that help students access it smoothly.  The following tutorials help you organize content, create opportunities for interaction, create assignments, and create quizzes or exams.
Your Blackboard courses is automatically set as not available.  That means the students cannot see your course, which gives you time to update and make corrections.  We recommend that you make your course available to students to view a week prior to the start of class. 
Announcements are a helpful way to provide updates to students throughout the course.
You may also send emails to the whole class, certain groups, or individuals.

The Performance Dashboard in Blackboard can help you track your students progress in your course. It is important to remember to check the box of  tracking number of views for best results in any item, content, or assignment.
