What is the Navigation menu?


The navigation menu is located on the left of each course in Blackboard. It contains links to the content areas of your course like Assignments, Announcements, Course Documents and more.

What to do if you don't see the navigation menu


If you don't see the Navigation menu it is probably minimized or has been automatically hidden. There are two ways to restore it depending on the reason it's missing.

If you see a blue bar running down the left or right hand side of the screen click it to restore the navigation menu. If you don't see the bar and you are using a Windows or Apple computer, either maximize your browser or make sure your zoom isn't set over 125%. If you are on a mobile device, hold your device in a landscape position or zoom out until you see the blue bar.
