Blackboard Orientation

Global Navigation and My Blackboard

The Global Navigation and My Blackboard panel provides users with easy access to timely information for courses, organizations, etc. You can quickly tell when there is something new or needs your attention by the notification indicator – the number of notification appears in red next to your name. Just select your name to open the Global Navigation panel.

The User Menu allows you to access Courses or Organizations that you are enrolled in and have recently visited. You can also edit personal settings such as font size from the user menu. However, some personal setting options are not editable because the changes would effect how Blackboard talks to HVCC systems, such as Banner/WIReD.

The My Blackboard menu allows you to view grades for courses or organizations you are enrolled in, course updates, posts, and more.
