Why aren't my units in Blackboard?

If a unit isn't appearing in Blackboard it is usually for one of the following reasons:

The unit does not have an online component

Not all units have an online component. Check your Unit Outline to confirm whether your unit should appear in Blackboard.

The unit has not been made available

Units are usually made available in Blackboard on the first day of the study period. However, your Lecturer may choose a different start date. If you have concerns that you are unable to see your Unit, please contact your lecturer.

Your enrolment details are incorrect

If you are incorrectly enrolled in a unit, you will not see the unit in Blackboard. To check your current enrolment:

  1. Open eStudent (click on the eStudent button on the My Studies tab).
  2. Click Enrolment & Study Plans in the left hand menu. A sub menu will open.
  3. Click Current Enrolment Details in the sub menu.
  4. The units you are enrolled it will now be displayed. If your enrolment is incorrect, please contact your Student Service Office.

When is Blackboard available?

Blackboard is available 24 hrs a day, 7 days a week.

Email in Blackboard

All emails sent to you from Blackboard go to your student email account. It is recommended that you check your emails regularly (your lecturer may have sent you an important message about your unit).

Note: The email facility in Blackboard allows you to send emails to other students in your Blackboard unit. The emails will be sent to their student email address.

Having problems with Blackboard?
