This document was adapted from https://help.blackboard.com

 

After logging in to Blackboard, you "land" on the My Institution tab. Across the top of that page, the Starfish tab is also available.

Modules on the My Institution tab collect information from all the courses you are enrolled in, giving you a total picture of news and activity for your courses.
