Setting course availability for students

By default, as a security measure, blackboard 9.1 will set all of your courses as unavailable to the enrolled students [Students will see the course listed in their list, but the link will be inactive therefore they will not be able to get in to the course]. Once you are comfortable to allow students in your course, you must follow the process described below to make the course available to your students.

If it is listed as "unavailable", log in to the course and scroll down to the Course Management section of your course homepage and click on "Customization."

Then click on "Properties".

Scroll down to Step 3, "Set Availability".


Change the "Make Course Available" from No to Yes.


Click "Submit".
