Overall, the Blackboard interface is similar to the interface of older versions. However, there are some notable differences.

Tabs and Tools

Like older versions of Blackboard, you will see tabs for the main Blackboard page and for your courses, however the main page is now called My Institution.

In the top right, you will see your name. Clicking on it will open up the Global Navigation Menu. Clicking the power icon will log you out of Blackboard.

Course Menu

The menu of links to various areas of Blackboard is the same in function, but it does look a bit sleeker than in older versions. The new default color scheme is dark grey with white text.

Course Dashboard

In the course Dashboard, you will notice several more boxes than you would find in the old Blackboard. These are called modules.
