UMBC Blackboard NEW Course Shell Request

Blackboard course shells are automatically created every semester for any course in the schedule of class (SoC) that has an instructor. Course shells will NOT be created if the instructor is listed as "STAFF". If an instructor is teaching two or more sections of the same course, those sections will be combined into one Blackboard shell. If you find that your course has not been created or if you need to separate out sections into individual Blackboard shells, use this form to request a new course.
