Organize your Courses by Term in Blackboard
January 3, 2013Posted by on
Over the course of 12 years of using Blackboard at Sam Houston State University we have always dealt with the long list of courses that display in your My Courses module by placing an “X” in front of the course’s title so that is moves down below the most recent semester. This can become confusing depending on where you are looking for your Blackboard courses and how many courses you have. Starting in the Spring 2013 semester, you can organize your My Courses Module by Term.
Courses not in a Term will be placed in a No Term Assigned term. There are separate terms for Spring 2013 Online and Face to Face courses as well as CJ 7 Week and EMBA courses.
Follow these steps and you can organize your My Courses module by term:
Log into Blackboard and place your mouse in your My Courses module. You will notice that an “S” appears in the upper right-hand side of the module for module settings. Click on it.
Note: The “S” will not show up if your mouse is not placed on the My Courses module.
Select the Group by Term check box. This is the most important step to ensure your My Courses module is organized.
Note: You may also change the order of your terms as well as decided whether you want to Show the term or Expand the term open or closed.
