Documents uploaded by your Instructor such as .pdf or Word documents can be printed by your normal process.

To print text directly from Blackboard:

This is impacted by something called frames and will print the navigation buttons on the left-hand side of your screen. If you want to print a specific section you will first need to indicate which section you want printed. It is not necessary to print the Course Menu buttons.

Here is one way to print the content area of the page::

  1. Highlight the text you want to print.
  2. Press Ctrl-p (Cmd-p for a Mac) to print.
  3. In the print dialog box, choose 'Selection', then Print.
