Blackboard – Organise your list of courses

You can choose to show or hide courses in the My Courses list and group the list by Term.

Note: doing this does not remove you from the course, it simply hides it from your list of courses in the My Courses box.

Find the My Courses list

Your full courses list is found in the Courses view of Blackboard. You cannot alter the view of courses on Blackboard Home.

  • If you are on the Blackboard Home page, go to the Blackboard Courses view.
  • Select the Manage My Courses cog/ icon that appears when you hover over the My Courses box.
The link to Coures view is to the right of Home on the top menu bar.

Group by Term

Term display options
  • Select to Group by Term. This will group courses by academic year or course type. (some course types do not have a year term – for example Training Courses)
  • Tick/un-tick Show Term to show or hide courses listed in particular Terms.
  • You can change the displayed order that the Terms appear in by clicking and dragging on the up and down arrow icon beside the Term.
  • Select Submit when done.
