Blackboard Learn Requests

Enrollment

Use the Enrollment Request form for additional enrollments into a Blackboard Learn course shell beyond the regular registered students or Banner assigned instructor(s). 

This form is used for:

  • Enrolling additional CCSU faculty, staff or students whom the instructor wishes to grant access to a course shell. 
  • Enrolling CCSU Faculty or Students as teaching assistants or observers.
  • Enrolling a student who is finishing an incomplete.
  • To temporarily allow an instructor to access a course in order to copy the shell.
  • Other circumstances that may arise. 

This form is not used to enroll:

  • regular student registrations
  • a person who is not affiliated with CCSU
  • the instructor(s) on record

Please Note: At least one (if multiple) instructors on record must make this request. This request cannot come from a CCSU Student or an instructor who is not on record for the course.

To request a Blackboard Enrollment:
1. Go to www.ccsu.edu/it and click on "IT Requests".
2. Login with email address and password (if prompted)
3. Search for "Blackboard Enrollment".

4. Complete the Enrollment form; click Review & Submit; confirm the information and click Submit. You will receive an email indicating your request has been received.

Course Merge

The merge request process combines two or more Blackboard Learn course shells into one blank master shell. This is useful if you have more than one section of the same course as the merge process creates one master shell for all sections requested. This allows you to only have to upload content into one section. It also will combine your enrollments into one master grade book. The students will still only see their individual section.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Your course shells must be blank before requesting the merge as the merge process produces a new blank shell and the individual sections become unavailable to the instructor. At this point, you can copy content from another shell into the merge master through the Course Copy process.    

To request a Blackboard Merge:
1. Go to www.ccsu.edu/it and click on "IT Requests".
2. Login with email address and password (if prompted).
3. Search for "Blackboard Merge".
4. Complete the Enrollment form; click Review & Submit; confirm the information and click Submit.
 You will receive an email indicating your request has been received.
