Blackboard Help: Why Can't I see My Courses?
----------------------------------------------------
Blackboard is an online learning system that is separate from the ANTS
Registrar's records. To enter an online course area, you must
manually add the course to your list of My Courses within the Blackboard
system. Blackboard calls this process "enrollment".

To enroll in a course:

1. Go to the ANTS web site at http://www.ants.edu.

2. Under the E-learning menu (in the right column), click Login to
Blackboard.

2. Enter your Username and Password, then click Login again.

3. In the Blackboard E-Learning Center, click the green Courses tab at
the top of the screen.

4. In the Course Catalog section, click the On-Campus Courses link.
Then click the link to the appropriate semester's courses.

5. Navigate the menus to find your on-campus courses.

6. To the right of each course title, click Enroll for the course(s)
you want to access.
A page is displayed that contains the course description.

7. Click Submit. You will get a confirmation that you have been
enrolled in the class. Click OK to enter the classroom.

Blackboard Tip: Remove Last Semester's Courses from "My Courses" List

year. However, you can hide the display of course links in your My
Courses list.

want to hide.
