My Courses<br />

tab on the upper left panel, which allows you to view your courses and the name of the<br />

course. The course home page features announcements about the course, video recordings<br />

How to Access Courses<br />

at the top right corner of the screen, the Global Navigation Menu will appear and from<br />

here, you will be able to see your courses as well. You will also find the link to upload your<br />

profile photo in this menu.

How to submit your assignments on Blackboard Learn<br />

Choose the content that contains the homework assignment on the course page. Your<br />

instructor can add assignments to different areas of your course. For example, your<br />

instructor might have created a menu item called Assignments. Ask your instructor if you<br />

have questions about how your course is organized. Click on the item. Review instructions,<br />

deadline and grading criteria on Upload Assignment page and download the files, if any,<br />

that are provided by your instructor.<br />

Complete your assignment by using one of the following:<br />

- Click on Text Submission and extend the Write Submission box. You can use the<br />

functions in the editor to format the text. You could also use the content editor to attach<br />

file, image, link and multimedia.<br />

- Click on Browse My Computer and select a file to attach. You could click on Do not<br />

Attach if you have uploaded the wrong file. If your assignment is uploaded more than<br />

once, the new file will be saved with a name and a number like history_assignment(1).doc<br />

Optionally, you may add comments by using Add Comments.<br />

Finally, make sure you click on Submit. A message that confirms your assignment has<br />

been sent will be displayed. If you forget to click on Submit, your submission will remain<br />

“in progress” and your instructor will not be able to grade it.
