MOD is also used where two or more separate module codes are combined into a single course in Blackboard. In this case, the course name in Blackboard will include ‘Merged Course’.

B occurrences are NOT automatically merged into the main MOD course in Blackboard.
Staff will see B occurrences as separate courses in Blackboard.
