Blackboard Organisations

Organisations have many of the features of courses but exist perpetually.

The following criteria are used when considering requests for Organisations:

  • Organisations in Blackboard should not be used merely to replace or instead of web sites created formally by the web team.
  • Blackboard exists to support learning and teaching activities, it is not a general purpose collaborative environment.
  • The Banner-Blackboard integration means that we cannot create accounts for external users in Blackboard so all users must be Victoria users (staff or students).
  • We cannot automate the population of users into organisations (or their removal) so all user access is the responsibility of the staff member responsible for the organisation.
  • Organisations must be owned by a permanent member of staff who is personally responsible for ensuring that the organisation is operated in accordance with all university policies.
