How to Categorise Your Blackboard Course

Blackboard has a Course Catalog to organise courses held on the system. This may be viewed by clicking on the Courses tab along the top of the screen and then clicking on Browse the Course Catalog.

All courses with full Banner codes have been assigned to the category in which they are held within the Banner central database.

If you have an ‘arbitrary’ course, you may categorise it manually by following the five step guide below.

  1. Access the Control Panel and expand Customisation.
  2. Click on Properties.
  3. Scroll down to Section 5 – Categorise Course.
  4. Select the appropriate grouping from the list and press the > button to select it
  5. Scroll to the bottom and click on Submit.
