I think I missed something in the Blackboard course creation. There does not seem to be much information or direction for new course developers. I'm just guessing and poking around. I am finding a few things, but I have used other courseware systems so I know what I'm looking for. If I didn't, this would be really, really frustrating.
I frequently get blank pages where I should be getting course authoring forms and information. I read that they were overwhelmed with traffic and it is free, so I'm not complaining. However, for classmates who are new to courseware, this could be a problem.
