Tabs and Modules > My Institution Tab

My Institution Tab

The My Institution tab contains tools and content. Several modules include content pulled from courses specific to each user. Remember that the Blackboard administrator at your school can rename tabs. The Institution tab is a type of Module Page that contains Modules that you select from a list. A Module can be a tool, such as a calculator, or it can display dynamic information such as grades, alerts, and announcements.

You can personalize the content and layout of the My Institution tab. The options you set are the default settings that appear each time you login. While you can choose which modules appear, the Blackboard administrator at your school may restrict or require modules.

In some instances, you may have access to several tabs that contain modules. These additional tabs include the same features for customizing the content and layout of modules.
