What Is the Course ID and why is this important in Blackboard?
A: The Course ID is the identifier that the system uses to refer to your course. For all official courses we have a specific breakdown of the Course ID. The format at SMU is:
- Academic School year
- M = Minneapolis & W = Winona
- Semester (1=Fall, 2=Spring, 3=Summer)
- Course ID w/Section (A-Z)
and this will typically look like this 2010W1_TA101A .
