Blackboard’s user-friendly home page navigation allows you to have access to core features in the left menu where your name appears (see 1). You can easily return to the list from wherever you are—even if you're in a course. You'll see the list peeking from behind the other layers you have open.
Upon login, you will be in the Activity Stream (see 2) which displays all the action in all your courses.
When you select any link from the list, you see a global view across all your courses. For example, Grades shows your scores across all your courses, without having to navigate to each one.
