Blackboard Course Creation Request
You must submit a Course Creation Request for each semester that you plan to use Blackboard for teaching.
Three Options for Online Course Requests
Option 1. Create a New (empty) Blackboard Course
Important Note for Instructors: If you are using course cartridges or digital content solutions from publishers (e.g. McGraw-Hill, Wiley, Cengage, Pearson, etc.) please select Option #1: Create a Blank Course.
Each semester that an existing Blackboard course is taught, course instructors or builders must submit a Bb Course Request. You must have the role of Instructor of the previous Bb course to be able to request a copy.
All new [non-course] Special Projects may submit a request for a Blackboard Organization. Unlike a Blackboard Course, however, an Organization:
- cannot be used for course credit-earning activities;
- can be continuous from semester to semester, but must have a Leader who is in charge and can confirm annually whether the organization is still active;
- has a limited file space quota, which may be increased upon approval.
