The Course Home Page will keep you up to date by displaying announcements, the latest discussion posts, and messages for a single course. (Please note that some instructors may have a different setup for their Course Home page.)
Course calendar events appear to students and usually include due dates for assignments. The use of the Calendar will vary from instructor to instructor.
Announcements are messages from your instructor that contain important information. Many instructors send at least one announcement each week (usually to introduce a new module, provide feedback, and to send out other pertinent information quickly and broadly).
If enabled by your instructor, you can subscribe to email alerts to know when new Discussion Posts are made. Your instructor chooses if the alerts are for posts made at the forum or thread level. Be sure to check your MU email account regularly for Discussion Post notifications.
You can access your grades link from two places:
If you have a question about course content, such as “When is my assignment due?” or “Which chapters do I read for class?” you will need to contact your instructor or Teaching Assistant (TA).
The Blackboard Mobile App is a great way to take your courses on the go. In addition to viewing content and participating in courses, you can enable push notifications on your mobile device and receive notifications for new content items, courses, test availability, announcements, graded items, and due/overdue items.
