  • Global Navigation Menu – The entry point to My Blackboard is the Global Navigation Menu.  This menu is available at the top of the Blackboard (BREO) page  and provides users with one-click access to their Units, Communities, Settings, Blackboard Help and the My Blackboard tools.
  • My Blackboard – this is a pop-out module designed for staff and students to prevent having to go to multiple places to stay up-to-date on what’s going on across all their units, communities and interactions in Blackboard.  The My Blackboard features include Overview, Posts, Updates, My Grades (for students), Retention Centre that shows students at risk and Calendar.
  • Posts – The Posts tool in My Blackboard makes it easy for users to stay up-to-date and engaged with all the conversations going on across Blackboard Learn.  The Posts tool consolidates posts from all of their units and communities, including posts from Discussion Boards, Journals, Wikis, and Blogs, as well as the comments and replies to those posts.
  • Updates – The Updates tool in My Blackboard consolidates all Notifications from across all Units and Communities, so users never miss a thing.  This tool updates users on unit announcements, when new content or assignments are added to a unit, when an assignment or assessment is due, and much more.
  • My Grades – If you use quizzes and tests, the My Grades tool consolidates all students’ grades from across all their units into one view.  There’s no need for them to navigate in and out of all their units to check grades.
  • Retention Centre – If you have set tracking for items, minimum scores for quizzes, and tasks, you can check which students are slipping behind here.
  • Calendar – Here, everyone can see all Blackboard calendar items in one place; but you need to post events for them to appear.
  • Communities change the list to your communities; Tools give access to a range of tools; and Settings lets you change some of the elements in My Blackboard.
