Summer Term Blackboard courses are now available to faculty. Under Enterprise, all academic Blackboard course sites are created automatically, using the course listing information in the Banner system.
Instructors requiring combined enrollments in their Blackboard courses should use the online course request form on the FCLD website to request that their combined courses be set up on Blackboard. Instructors should be sure they submit the correct CRN for course requests, as the CRN is the basis for student enrollments.
In order for instructors to access their Blackboard courses, instructor assignments must be registered in the Banner system. If you need help getting listed in Banner, please contact the Registrar’s Office at (860) 768-4594.
Registered students are automatically enrolled into Blackboard courses at the time courses are created, but do not have access to courses until the instructor changes the availability status of the course. Automatic course enrollments include both adds and drops, and automatic enrollments are processed daily throughout the semester. Faculty should avoid manually adding or dropping students from Blackboard courses, as this will interfere with the automation process.
FCLD staff is available to answer any questions about these procedures or any other Blackboard questions. Please contact them by phone at (860) 768-4661 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
