Grouping Blackboard Courses by Term

One useful setting in Blackboard’s homepage is “Group by Term.” When activated, this feature sorts your course shells based on the term in which each course was held. You can then expand and collapse these terms to save space on your Blackboard homepage and streamline your view. The tutorial video demonstrates how to enable the Group by Term feature from the Blackboard LEARN homepage.


  1. Log into Blackboard LEARN and locate the “My Courses” module from your homepage
  2. Click the gear icon in the top-right corner of the module
  3. At the top of the “Personalize: My Courses” page, click on the Group by Term checkbox. You can also make other changes to how your courses display such as reordering terms.
  4. Click Submit to confirm your changes
