Registering for courses in Blackboard is different from registering for courses using, for example, Studieweb. There are two options when it comes to registering for courses in Blackboard:
1. You register yourself
In this case you log in to the Blackboard site. Look for the course you want to register for in the Course Catalogue. You can find this under the ‘Look for a course' link, in the ‘MijnUvA' education tab. You will see an ‘Enrol' button alongside the course you have looked up. If you click on this button you will be shown a page with the name of the course and the lecturer. If all the information is correct, click on ‘Submit'. You are now registered for the course.
Alternatively, lecturers may determine they wish to receive an email with students' registration requests. In this case you will see the ‘Enrol' button and a confirmation page. The lecturer will then receive an email stating that you have submitted a registration request. The lecturer decides whether or not you can take part in the course.
Sometimes you can only register if you have a password. In this case, too, you will see an ‘Enrol' button next to the desired course. If you click on it you will be asked to enter a password (Access Code).
If the ‘Enrol' button is not displayed at all and you wish to take part in the course, you should contact the course lecturer. You can find the lecturer's name in the Course Catalogue.
Additional information about a course is available if the lecturer has made the course accessible for guests. In that case you will see a ‘Preview' button. If this button is not available, the lecturer has decided not to admit any guests.
2. You are registered
It may also be the case that the administration or lecturer has registered you for a Blackboard course. In that case you no longer have to register according to the above instructions.
In order to check whether your registration was successful, click on the ‘MijnUvA' education tab. If your registration was successful, the course will be listed under the heading ‘Courses: Quick View, Courses in which you are participating'.
