Getting Started Resources

In the Getting Started tab, instructors should post the most important information that students should know from the start of the semester. The video below explains how to use Blackboard’s Content Editor. While the Content Editor isn’t necessary for putting together a helpful Getting Started page, many instructors will find it useful.

Although Getting Started is required for ALL courses, online courses especially should have a robust and well-organized Getting Started section to ensure that students have access to everything they need to be successful in an online course.
