The Customization feature allows instructors to change the availability of a course. When courses are setup on Blackboard they are made available to Instructors, TA's, and Course Builders but not students. Many instructors have requested it be setup this way so they may work on the site before students have access to it. A course set to Unavailable is not available to students but remains available to the instructor, TA’s and course builders.
Accessing the Settings Feature
- Select and log into the course
- Select Customization from the Control Panel (lower left side)
