Course Enrollment and Availability

A Blackboard course is automatically created for every course at UIC.

By default, Blackboard courses are visible only to the instructor until instructors choose to make the course available to students.

To make a course available to students:

  • Select Customization under the Course Management Control Panel for a course site.

  • Select Properties from the items below Customization to display the Properties page.

  • Under Set Availability, select Yes.

  • Click Submit.

Please note: even if you have made your course available, students may not be able to access the course if the availability dates of your course are incorrect. On the Properties page, ensure that the Start and End Dates under Set Course Duration are correct, or that the course duration is set to Continuous.
