A course must be made available before students enrolled in the course will be able to view or access the course and its content. An instructor may want to make a course unavailable during the building process or after a scheduled course has finished.
If your course is unavailable, access is determined by course role. Blackboard administrators, instructors, course builders, teaching assistants, and graders can see and access unavailable courses from the My Courses tab and the course list, even though they are marked as unavailable. Students cannot access unavailable courses regardless of the course duration. Unavailable courses do not appear in the course catalog.
How to Make Your Course Available (Visible) to Students
- On the Control Panel, expand the Customization section and click Properties.
- In the Set Availability section, click Yes.
- Click Submit.
New in March 2017: Instructors can also make courses available/unavailable from the MyBlackboard page using the Blackboard tool, Qwickly. To learn more, please visit Qwickly.
