Bb Mailbag: Sorting Courses & Favorites


Welcome to the Blackboard Mailbag, where we feature a commonly asked question that has been hitting our mailbox recently: You’ll find an archive of all of the previous questions and answers on our website.  

Note:  Features may change with future updates.  

Q:  How are courses organized on the “Courses” tab?

A:  Courses are sorted by term.  The current term is displayed when you click on the “Courses” tab.  You can use the arrows to move to the upcoming or previous term or select the semester from the drop-down menu.

View your favorites quickly: If you access a course frequently, you can select the star button to add it to your favorites so it appears at the top of the list. You can select the star button again to remove a course from your favorites.

You can’t reorder courses in the list. Courses are listed in alphabetical order and grouped by term with the newest courses first. Your favorites appear at the top of the page.

For more about Sorting Courses and Creating Favorites, visit the Bb Instructor guide on this topic.
