There are many reasons a course may not show up in your Blackboard course listing.
1. The Instructor has not made the class available to students:
Most courses are not available until the first day of the semester. If you are registered for the course in the WebAdvisor system, the semester has begun, and you still do not see the course listed in Blackboard, we suggest you contact your instructor first to verify if the course has been made available.
2. The instructor may not be using Blackboard:
It is possible that your instructor is not utilizing the Blackboard LMS system for their course and therefore has not made the course available. Once again, it would be a good idea to verify with your instructor whether they will be opening the course for use.
3. You have a financial hold:
It may be possible you have a financial hold on your account which is prevent access to your course(s). We suggest you contact the Admissions/Records/Registration office at 217-786-2292 to inquire further.
4. The Instructor has disabled your profile in the course:
Instructors may disable your profile in their course as a means to facilitate communication between you and the instructor. Typically this may happen if attendance is low or nonexistent and no communication between instructor/student has been established.
5. You may have accidentally hidden the course from your My Courses list:
To verify this setting,
• Click on the gear icon in the upper right corner of the My Courses section of your Blackboard homepage.
• This will take you to the Personalize: My Courses page.
• In Section 1: Edit Course List, make sure the course you are wishing to display is checked in the “Courses in which you are enrolled” section.
If you have verified both items above and still cannot see your course listed in Blackboard, please contact Gary Bach with the Academic Innovation & eLearning department at (217) 786-2345.
