Your courses will appear under your list of my courses in the left of the screen. Some courses are not going to be in blackboard, because not all instructors use blackboard. Those students who do not use blackboard, will have to complete any assignments within their textbook and any lab work that is required for the class. Click on the course title for each course you wish to access. Now you are ready to navigate any course you want.

Assignments are easy to attach. For example, in this case, the course you are going to choose is English. First, click on the green coursework tab in the left of the screen; it will take you to the coursework folder. Then, move the arrow slowly to the bottom until you find unit 2 Process and Explaining Writing, and click on it. Next you will be in the unit 2 folder. Move the arrow slowly to the bottom again until you find group forums: digital writing process project, and click on it. Then, click on the button that says add file, fill in the name of the assignment, and click on browse my computer to attach the assignment you saved in the computer. Finally click on submit.

    I like it because its specific in how to use blackboard step by step. One way to improve in this blog is by explaining other things that blackboard provides such as the grading process and how to check for quizzes and online homework for your classes through blackboard.

  2. – One thing you two do well was the introduction of your post it entertain and explain everything you could expect to use blackboard.
    -One thing you could improve is the usage of blackboard when they are enter to it, because you could have questions about other things and you do not do have this information there.
