Blackboard (Faculty) - CRN Changes
The CRN is an automatically generated five-digit course number in CougarNet/Banner. This number is tied to a corresponding course in Blackboard. If the CRN changes, enrollments in the corresponding Blackboard course will be affected. For example, if a course section is deleted from CougarNet/Banner, students and instructors will be removed from the Blackboard course associated with the old CRN and will be enrolled in the Blackboard course shell with the new CRN.
The Blackboard course shell associated with the new CRN will be blank. The instructor will lose access to the content in the Blackboard course shell with the old CRN number. If the instructor needs access to that content, they should send an email to the Blackboard Admin at firstname.lastname@example.org and ask to be added to the Blackboard course shell associated with the old CRN number.
