Does Blackboard have a search option?

Unfortunately, there is currently no feature that will allow you to search for key words within Blackboard. This is because the content can vary in its format (such as Word, PowerPoints, PDFs etc).

If you wish to have an overview of all the content in a Blackboard area, at the top of the menu in the module or programme, click on the folder icon 'Display Course Menu' in a Window. In the new window, you can see all the folders and content within that module or programme and you can then expand it (+ icon at the top).

Hopefully, this may go some way to help you find what you are looking for. If you require further assistance, please contact us at the Catalyst Helpdesk, or by calling 01695 650800. Alternatively you can email us at
