Bb Services is the course request system for Blackboard course and community sites. Each semester, a Blackboard course site will be automatically created for each course that faculty are assigned to teach. This occurs approximately 4-6 weeks prior to the start of the semester. However, if you would like to begin working on your course site prior to this time, you may make a request through Bb Services to have your site created.
You can also request to add additional users (TA, Grader, Co-Instructor), migrate content from a previous semester, apply a program template, and combine multiple sections of the same course into one site.
If requesting to add additional users to your site, please see the chart below for a description of level of access by role.
In order to make any course site or related requests through Bb Services, instructors must:
- Have an "active" status with Human Resources and thus be able to log in to Blackboard using MultiPass credentials
- Have a "faculty" designation in Banner
- Be officially assigned to the course section in Banner by The Registrar's Office. Instructors can view courses assigned to them via DORI > Faculty and Advisor Series > Faculty Menu > Schedule Detail.
If any of the above conditions are not met, instructors should contact their Department Chair or Administrative Assistant.
