I am registered for an online course but do not see my class in Blackboard, what do I do?
Blackboard courses are made available on the first day of class. If you log into Blackboard and you do not see your courses listed, DO NOT PANIC. All courses are made available on the first official day of the semester and your instructor has the ability to make the course available prior to the first day. However, not all instructors make their online courses available prior to the first day of class. If, after the first day of class you still do not see your course, email firstname.lastname@example.org with your full name and the course information.
