Navigate Blackboard Part One – Edit Mode
Navigate Blackboard
Three tools to get you started moving through your course are Edit Mode, hiding and displaying the
Course Menu, and navigating with Blackboard’s breadcrumbs.
Part One – Edit Mode
•
The Edit Mode button is under your login information on the right hand side of the screen near the
top of the page.
•
To make changes to your course, make sure that Edit Mode is on
•
When Edit Mode is: OFF, you will not be able to add content or edit pages. You will see a view of
your course that is similar to what the student sees.
*Edit Mode in the OFF position does not display a true student preview, only a close
approximation. To view your course as your students see it, click the Student Preview button to
the left of the Edit Mode and Course Theme buttons.

Part Two – Hide and Display the Course Menu
If you are viewing Blackboard on a small screen, you can hide the Course Menu to give yourself
more room to view content.
•
The Hide Course Menu button is a hidden button that will only appear if you hover over it with
your mouse.
•
To display the button, hover your mouse over the area just to the right of the Course Menu. A
bar with an arrow will appear.
•
If you click the arrow, the menu will collapse to the left.
•
You may restore the Course Menu by clicking the arrow again.

Part Three – Breadcrumbs
Rather than using the back button in your web browser, use Breadcrumbs to navigate through
Blackboard.
Content Area
•
In this example, a Discussion Forum is displaying in the content area.
•
The circled links are Breadcrumbs. The title all the way to the right in the Breadcrumbs list will
be the title of the page you are currently viewing.
•
In this example, clicking the first link in the Breadcrumbs would take you back to the main
Discussion Board page.
