  20. 20. How to: Access your Bb9 course, A student guide to Blackboard Learn 9 (STUDENT)<br />Background:<br />Blackboard 9 (Bb9) is the University's new online learning system, replacing Blackboard Vista 8 from 2011.<br />An online learning system allows you to view course material for any units that you are taking. You can also complete and submit coursework and monitor your progress using online tests and quizzes. You can communicate and collaborate with your lecturer or other students using discussions or chat.<br />Details:<br />The method you use to access a Blackboard course may have changed from when you last used it, due to an upgrade to the University's Blackboard from Blackboard Vista 8 to Blackboard Learn 9 (Bb9).<br />Accessing a Blackboard Course:<br />Log in to My Manchester by going to : my.manchester.ac.uk<br />To enter your Blackboard course, click on the My Studies tab. The My Courses box will appear with Current,Ended and Future tabs<br />To enter a course from an appropriate tab, click on its title<br />

  32. 32. “The worldwide computer network - the electronic agora - subverts, displaces, and radically redefines our notions of gathering place, community, and urban life. The Net has a fundamentally different physical structure, and it operates under quite different rules from those that organize the action in the public places of traditional cities.” <br />William Mitchell, “City of Bits” (1994)<br />Networked Knowledge Society<br />
