Instructors control which tools and features are available in their courses. You can generally access Blackboard tools inside a course or from a tab. Tools may include:

Editor

Many Blackboard tools and features use a content editor or WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) box. The content editor allows you to add and format text, insert equations and hyperlinks, tables, and attach different types of files to create content. 

Working with Groups

Your instructor may set up groups within Blackboard.
