Log into your Blackboard Account
Choose the course you need to make available to students.
Look in the upper right hand corner of the course next to the "Edit Mode" button, and look for the padlock icon.
Open lock means course is available, closed lock means course is unavailable.
Open = Course is available to students
Closed = Course is not available to students
If you want to set your course to open during a specific timeframe (automatically), you can navigate to the "Customization" area of the course management menu and then click "Properties."
On the next page, click the option to "Select Dates" and use the calendar icons to set the course open and close dates for the term.
