How do I request a Blackboard course site for the class I am teaching?
You no longer have to request that a Blackboard course site be created for CREDIT COURSES that you are teaching. All courses will automatically have a Blackboard course site created for you one month before the beginning of the semester. In the rare event that your course site has not been set up for you, please email Forrest Smith, and we can get one set up for you.
