  4. You can change how the courses are listed by hovering over the top bar of the My Courses (or Course List) box and clicking the gear that appears in the corner.

    From here you can hide elements such as Course IDs, or even entire courses if you wish.




What if I still can't log into Blackboard?

a) You transitioned from being a student to being a faculty/staff member.

b) You are a faculty/staff member who is taking courses for the first time.

c) Your network account is expired or not working for Blackboard specifically.
