Each cohort of a module should be supported by their own Blackboard module site.

Where a module is indicated as running in SITS (i.e. marked active with a module leader) and had a Blackboard site in the previous academic year, then it will be copied forward automatically in May/June for the new year (e.g. where a 2017/18 module is indicated as running, a copy of the 2016/17 module site will be made). If this is the case, then you will not need to request a Blackboard site to support the module.

Where a module is indicated as running in SITS but did not have a Blackboard site in the previous academic year, a new Blackboard site will be created automatically from a standard template in May/June for the new year (e.g. where a 2017/18 module is indicated as running but did not have a Blackboard site in 2016/17). If this is the case, then you will not need to request a Blackboard site to support the module.

Any staff member currently on the Blackboard site can enrol you onto it if you ask them. If you are unsure who to ask, you can find out by following the process for requesting a new site - during which you will be told who the main contacts for the site are (you can then cancel out of the process).

However, if a module is newly validated or did not copy forward automatically, then you will need to request a new Blackboard site to support the module.
