Hub Courses in Blackboard


Your school may have requested one or more “hub courses”. These are Blackboard courses that have students from more than one SITS unit on them, often to avoid adding duplicate content.

The original SITS courses still exist, although they are unavailable to students by default. However, there are a number of University tools that only work (or work best) in the SITS courses, including:

  • eReserves
  • Mediasite recordings
  • Library reading lists
  • Online submission of essays (particularly when this is part of a school-wide process)

These tools are generally NOT available in the hub courses. If you use these features, you will need to make the SITS courses available.

As an Instructor, you would add your resources to the hub course, and the related SITS courses should only be used to make the above tools available.
