* I teach 2 sections of the same course. How do I tell them apart in Blackboard?

You can modify the name of your course slightly to identify the different sections of your course.  To do this:
  • Enter the Blackboard course and go to Control Panel > Customization > Properties.
  • Look at the Course ID for your course to find your CRN.
  • Under Course Name, you can change the name of the course to identify the section (e.g. “ENG140 Introduction to Literature – Monday, 2:30”).  Be careful not to change the name too drastically, as this is how students find your course on their Blackboard homepage.
