While you technically can set the duration of availability for your Blackboard course site, there is no need to, as course are made available and unavailable to students automatically every semester. Please do not attempt to set Course Duration. If there is a situation in which you believe setting Course Duration is necessary for your course site, please contact the OIT HelpDesk at (865) 974-9900 or use our Contact Form.
