Blackboard (Faculty) - "TBA" Listed as Instructor

This document provides an overview of how to get an instructor in Blackboard if CougarNet/Banner lists the Instructor as "TBA"

If the instructor of record is listed as "TBA" in CougarNet/Banner, the course shell will be created, but no instructor will be listed in the Blackboard course.  When the instructor of record is updated in CougarNet/Banner to be the actual instructor of the course, that instructor will automatically be added to the Blackboard course shell.
