Summer 2016 UNI eLearning academic courses were initially populated with students at 11 a.m. CDT on Tuesday, May 3, 2016. Summer 2016 student enrollment will be imported into the UNI eLearning System daily, so all enrollment changes (adds/drops) will be automatically processed. Any changes entered in the Student Information System (SIS) by 5:00 PM will be processed the following day.

UNI Instructors: UNI eLearning courses are created in an "unavailable" state. This means an Instructor has access to the course, but students do not see the course listed in their My Courses module until the instructor makes the course available. Directions for making your course "available" to students are published at: http://www.uni.edu/elearning/how-do-i-make-my-bb-learn-9-courses-available-students . No action is required for instructors that choose not to use the UNI eLearning System. Note: Courses contracted through Continuing and Distance Education (CDE) will be made available by CDE staff by 8:00 a.m. CDT the day the class begins.

UNI Students: You will not see a course listed in your My Courses module unless the Instructor has made the eLearning course available. Not all classes have an eLearning component. Please contact your Instructor if you do not see your class listed.
