Organizations / Communities
The Blackboard Community System extends the benefits of the Blackboard system to organizations, providing the opportunity for online discussion and document sharing for groups on and off campus.
Blackboard features and functions are the same for organizations (referred to by some as communities) as they are for courses, however the roles assigned within an organization have different names from the roles assigned in a course. This table lists roles in Blackboard courses and the equivalent roles in an organization.
|Course Role||Organization Role|
For a list of tutorials on Blackboard features and functions for both organizations and courses, please visit Blackboard Faculty Tutorials.
The My Organizations Plus module in Blackboard allows the leader of an organization to add users, batch add users, remove users, and batch remove users. For assistance with these functions, refer to the Manage Organization Enrollment help document.
