Blackboard Course listing - Staff

Course listing on the Courses tab

The staff view of courses is split into two tabs: Current Courses and Archived Courses.

Current Courses are courses that you have a enabled enrolment to and where the module has not yet passed the resit run field board date (or where there is no confirmed resit, the first run field board date).

Archived Courses are courses that you no longer have an enrolment to (your enrolment is disabled), or where the module has passed the resit run field board date (or where there is no confirmed resit, the first run field board date). Module run courses are prefixed with the word Archived at the resit run field board date.

  1. Ability to temporarily re-enable your access to a historic course.
    • Once you have enabled your access, you will be able to carry out actions to the course such as changing the course availability and course copy.
    • Your access to the course will be disabled again the following working day.
  2. Visibility of whether a course is unavailable to students.
  3. Ability to filter courses listed by academic year.

Student access to their previous modules

Students retain access to their previous courses until they complete their programme of study. Staff enrolments to a module run course will become disabled 180 days after the resit run field board date (or where there is no confirmed resit, the first run field board date).

Please note that students will only be able to access a historic Blackboard course if it is available to students. Staff will be able to see the availability of courses on their Archived tab.
