My Tasks

Keeping “To Do” lists is an excellent way to stay organized. Although it is very easy to lose track of sticky notes or a notebook in which you may keep track of your tasks. Blackboard provides you with the My Tasks tool to easily manage your “To-Do” list in a digital format. Your instructor may use Blackboard Tasks as a way to help you and others keep track of class assignments that are due.
