Technology Update

By default, all Blackboard Courses are unavailable to students when they are first create - as indicated by the text "(unavailable)" next to your course name. This allows you some time and privacy while building your course. Once you have finished building your course in Blackboard, you will need to MAKE YOUR COURSE AVAILABLE to students. Otherwise, please inform your students that you won't make it available.
