Your 2011/12 courses can be found under the Future tab, in the My Courses portlet of the University portal/My Manchester. Ensure your Bb9 space has appropriate content for the start of year

Intructions on how to roll forward your Bb9 2010/2011 course to 2011/2012 are now available in the Knowledge Base. These instructions are for courses where the content is in a 2010/2011 space and the 2011/2012 space has not yet been activated.

If you have already built your Bb9 course in the 2011/2012 space, just review the full 'Blackboard and Start of Year 2011' article below. Your course will appear to students on 12th September 2011.

If you have activated both your 2010/2011 and 2011/2012 spaces your eLearning team will be in touch.

Instructions on linking directly to your reading list (adding a Reading Lists module) are also now available in the Knowledge Base.
