Faculty - Edit, Add, Remove, or Reorder Blackboard Modules

 

Modules give you and your students a quick way to see what is happening in your course. They also give you a way to access commonly used tools in your course. You, as the Instructor, have the ability to edit, add or remove some modules, and reorder the module layout.

 

Edit Module Content
To edit module information, click the Manage icon located at the top right corner of the module.

On the Add Module page, click Add to place the module on your module page.

Remove a Module
To remove a module, click the remove icon (X) located at the top right corner of each module.

In the pop-up window, click OK.

Note: Removing a module does not permanently delete it.

Modules that do not have a remove icon are required to appear.

Reorder Module Layout
You can reorder the modules by dragging-and-dropping them into the desired location.

Release the module to place it in its new location.

You can also use the keyboard accessible reordering tool for an alternative method to reorder items. The tool appears on the action bar at the right.

Select one of the modules.

Use the up and down arrow icons to move the module to a new position in a column list.

Use the right- and left-pointing arrows to move a module between columns.
