How do I get Blackboard access to a module I am teaching?
The standard method to enrol instructors on Blackboard courses is via the Akari Curriculum Management System. This ensures their instructor enrollment is maintained year to year.
Instructor access is through Akari.
If Akari is closed, you can log a ticket with the Servicedesk and ISS will add/remove you from your requested module.
