Making Your Course Available/Unavailable to Students

By default, the Blackboard Learn Course Availability Setting for students is always set to Yes. You can change it to the beginning and end dates for the term as they are listed in Banner as well as on the course catalog. This means your students cannot access your course before the first day of classes or after the last day of classes.  Alternately, you could change it to some other dates of your choosing via the Set Course Duration section.

  1. Log in to your Blackboard Learn course.
  2. From the Control Panel Menu click on Customization.
  3. In the Customization submenu, click Properties.
  4. Within the Properties window, scroll down to the Set Course Duration section and click the Set Date radio button to enter course availability dates.
    • NOTE: Within the Set Availability section, the Make Course Available setting needs to be set to Yes
  5. Click Submit.
