Time to Request Fall Blackboard Courses

July 10, 2014
If you plan on teaching with Blackboard during the fall semester, now is the time to request a course shell. Complete the request online by choosing the appropriate option under "Blackboard Faculty Forms" at

  • Please allow 3 to 5 business days for us to process requests for new course shells.
  • Remember that all newly created courses are set to be "unavailable" at the time of their creation and cannot be seen by your students. When you deem your course ready for students to see, you must make it available.
  • If you are teaching your summer class again this fall, you can copy or import past course material directly into your new course shell. See the export/import guide for instructions:
