In its responsive form, i.e. when a Blackboard Learn module is viewed on a low-resolution screen or mobile device, the left-hand course menu will collapse and be hidden from users, replaced by a blue Show Course Menu bar (again, highlighted in red below).

Selecting - or tapping - on this blue Show Course Menu bar will expand the left-hand course menu and make it visible again.

Tip: By tapping on or selecting this area with the mouse, the course menu can be toggled back and forth from hidden to visible.
