Tabs and Modules


tabsAston’s Blackboard has 2 tabs, that are available in the page header.

  1. The Welcome Page that loads when you login.
  2. The Modules age which shows you which Blackboard courses you have access too.



Modules show you what’s happening in your courses. Different modules show you different information and depending upon where the module appears can show information from just one course or multiple.

For example the Announcements module on the Welcome page shows announcements from all of your course, where as the Announcements module found in a Course shows announcements just from that course.

Depending upon how your lecturer has set up the Blackboard course you may be able to customise the settings for modules.
