Blackboard Courses Unavailable – Workaround

December 3, 2013

To: All Faculty

Issues and Resolutions: We were notified of an issue with Blackboard courses being unavailable this morning. We’ve discovered the cause to be that course end dates are set to 12/3/2013 (today).

Estimated Timeframe:  We are working to have this done to all courses on the system side. Faculty, in the meantime, you can manually make your course available to your students following these steps:
1.     While in your Blackboard course, click on Control Panel under Course Management
2.     Click on Properties under Customization
3.     Under section 4, change the End Date to 12/20/2013
4.     Repeat these steps for each course that you are teaching


User Impact: Blackboard courses will not show when students login to Blackboard until the steps above have been completed.
