What do I do if I am teaching a course this semester but it does not appear on the Blackboard Wizard when creating a new course site?

If the Wizard displays a message indicating that you are not assigned to any courses as an instructor, you will need to contact your academic department to determine if you’ve been added to your courses as an instructor in SIS. You will not be able to create a Blackboard site until your department has added you as an instructor to your course.

Where can I find a course site from a previous semester?

Chances are the site has been archived. See, “Restoring an Archived Site” in the Instructors Manual in the Training materials section.
