If you tell students to access specific information on Blackboard, be sure to check that students can easily find and access it. For instance:
- If your site structure is complex, add an Announcement linking directly to the content
- If you have added new information, ensure it is available (or that it is set to be available) by the date promised
- If the information was used previously with date restrictions, don’t forget to modify the availability dates
- Also check that the content area and/or folders containing the information is/are available to students
