How do I access a Blackboard module I am not enrolled on?

Access to content in Blackboard modules is restricted to the students enrolled on that module. However, some modules have guest access status, that enables registered users to access the module without being enrolled on it, How do I do that?

Go to a module you are not enrolled but that has guest access enabled:

  • Click on My Modules on the top right-hand side.

Screenshot of the 'My Modules' tab.

  • Under Course Search, type in the name of the module or a keyword from the title and click Go:

  • If this module has guest access enabled, it will appear in the list with a hyperlink on the module code to enable you to navigate it:
