We have now updated our guide on course roles in Blackboard to cover what various roles can and can’t do in more detail. Different course roles have different levels of access to Blackboard areas and tools, so it is important to allocate the most suitable roles to those involved in teaching or managing a module.
It also describes the introduction of 2 new roles, one dedicated to External Examiners and the other for members of staff associated with the University through partnerships.
The guide also includes advice on choosing the right role for the type of access required. You can find this guide under the Course Management section of the Support tab or access it here:
