Blackboard is the course management system for Mitchell Hamline School of Law students. Blackboard allows students to readily receive course materials; view the course syllabus; communicate and collaborate with students via email, discussion boards, blogs, wikis, journals, and online; submit papers and other assignments.
All courses taught at Mitchell Hamline have a corresponding online course on Blackboard. Student and faculty enrollment into a Blackboard course is directly linked to the College’s registration system and is updated automatically.
To access Blackboard Web Courses:
Use Chrome as your web browser with Blackboard.
Internet Explorer does not display the Blackboard pages correctly.
Log in with your Mitchell Hamline network credentials. Use your whole username that includes the @mitchellhamline.edu.
From the main Blackboard page, click on the Courses tab.
Enrolling in Courses
You will be automatically enrolled in the Blackboard course which you are registered for with the Registrar’s office. The Blackboard course will become available 1 week before the start of the semester. Your instructor may turn the availability on early or late as it pertains to the course.
Self-Enrolling in Courses
Students cannot self-enroll in a course. Student and faculty enrollment into a Blackboard course is directly linked to the College’s registration system and is updated automatically. If your course is not showing up, or it contains no content, first check to make sure your instructor is using Blackboard with that course. Not all courses use Blackboard.
How do I hide prior semesters’ courses?
Courses are available for three months after the semester ends. After that, those courses will be made unavailable and will disappear.
I’m only seeing the announcements page when I click on a course, HELP?!
Look for a <- > on the left side of your screen and click on it. This should restore the tabs on the left.
