Creating a course/organization in Blackboard does not make it immediately available for student/participant viewing. The Blackboard default setting is "Not Available", which limits the view only to the instructor/leaders and teaching assistants/assistants. This feature allows the instructor/leaders to develop the course/organization prior to making it available to students/participants. Students/Participants will not see the course/organization on their My Courses/Organizations list until the instructor/leaders makes it available.
1. Go to the Control Panel >> Customization >> Properties.
2. In the Set Availability section select Yes next to "Make Course Available."
3. Click Submit.
Note: Blackboard also allows an instructor/leader to make specific course/organization content available, or not, in the specific area where the content is added.
