Hide a Course

Hiding a course removes it from your view in Blackboard. This is useful when you have a merged course site and want to hide the multiple child course sites.

Hover over the course and select the 3 dots that appear and select Hide course. Instructors will not see that course in the course list.

To find the hidden course, select the All Courses drop down to Hidden from me.

Hover over the course and select the 3 dots that appear and select Show course to unhide the course.

To go back to your course list, go to the filter drop down and select All courses.

Hiding a course only hides it from your view in Blackboard. It is not the same as closing the course to prevent student access.
