How to organise your My Courses listing
If you're enrolled on a lot of courses, over a number of different academic years, the 'My Courses' area can quickly become messy and confusing. One useful setting in Blackboards homepage is Group by Term. When activated, this feature sorts your course based on the term in which each course was held. You can then expand and collapse these terms to save space on your Blackboard homepage and streamline your view.
We recommend using Group by Term to organise your courses.
How to group by term
- Hover over the My Courses title bar and click on the contextual wheel which appears.
- Check the 'Group by Term' checkbox
- Choose which years you wish to show or expand. You can also make other changes to how your courses display such as reordering terms.
- Click Submit to confirm your changes
