After several semesters of classes, students may find the “My Courses” listing becoming very lengthy, making it difficult to locate current courses. It is an easy process to hide a course so it no longer appears in the course list:
Your instructors may place course materials (such as PowerPoint presentations, Word documents, or images) in the Blackboard course website. These items can be placed in many different areas in Blackboard. Some types of computer files, such as images or video, can be viewed inside the Blackboard window. Other types of files, such as Word documents, are stored on the Blackboard server and must be downloaded and opened onto your computer.
