STEP 1:  Log into your Blackboard course and then find the "Control Panel" section under course management (lower left of your screen). 

STEP 2Select "Customization".

STEP 3:  Next select "Properties" and then scroll down you screen until you see an area maked as "Set Availability" and make sure that the option for "Make Course Available" is set to "Yes". Also make sure that course duration is set to "Continuous".

STEP 4:  Click "submit" at the bottom of the page for the action to take effect.  This will need to be done for each of your courses.
