Select a Course Entry Point


The default course entry point is the Announcements page. In some courses, it may be advantageous to change the entry point to another area. This can be done on the Set Course Entry Point page.

Setting a new course entry point takes effect immediately. However, the user that sets the new course entry point will not see the effect of the change until the user logs out of the Blackboard Learning System and logs back in.
