Blackboard allows our students and staff access to courses they are taking, teaching or observing. The course materials are available within each individual course build, but the Global Navigation (top right corner of the screen) provides access to personal information, settings, notifications, updates, grades, messages, calendar, posts and so on.

Common elements exist in each Blackboard course. A common template is used to load courses at USask into Blackboard. Common menu items (on the left side of the screen) include Course Homepage (source of course notifications), Syllabus, Course Materials, Email, My Grades, Announcements, Evaluations. Instructors may add additional items on the left side menu by selecting the large plus sign (+) at the top left of the menu when the Edit Mode is ON.
Instructors may view the course as a student by selection the Student Preview Icon located beside the Edit Mode button.
