Enrollment Population

Daily operations:

  • New Blackboard accounts (instructor and student) are loaded every 2 hours
  • New Course shells are created daily 
  • Instructors are enrolled in courses daily
  • Newly available courses are populated with students the next morning
  • Students are populated to available courses 3 times a day.
Manual Course Creation
As noted, during the semester, courses created in Mainestreet are loaded to Blackboard the next day during the daily processing. However, if a course shell is needed before the next day a Bb Administrator can manually create a course shell. The course shell's course ID must match a specified format in order to be connected with the course in Mainestreet, avoid the creation of a duplicate Bb course, and be able to have the integrations run properly. The course ID format specifications can be found here: Course ID Formats
