Request for Blackboard Organization

    The term “Blackboard Organization” describes an empty Blackboard course that can be used by UDC colleges, departments, faculty, staff, and/or students for activities that are in support of the educational, research, or administrative mission of the University. Like a Blackboard course, an Organization allows authorized participants who have UDC Blackboard accounts to access documents and collaborate with other Organization participants in a secure-access environment. Unlike a Blackboard course, however, an Organization cannot be used for course credit-earning activities, and can only be requested by full-time faculty and staff.

     In addition, Blackboard Organization leaders are responsible for manually enrolling participants.

    Follow these steps to request a Blackboard Organization:

    1. Fill out the below form.
    2. Once you submit the form, the Blackboard administrator will create the Organization.
    3. You will receive an email within 3-5 business days with login information and other instructions if applicable.

    If you have questions or require assistance, contact us at

    Please provide UDC email addresses for Organization Leaders.

    ** All new courses created must be peer reviewed before they are moved to Blackboard 9.1 (production site)
