Now that we're up and running with Blackboard 9, I'd like to point you to a few resources to help you find the information you need to use it. Chris Rodgers and I are combining our efforts and creating resources that will help both colleges. You can find a page on the GCCCD Online site that has all the Bb 9 tutorials we've rewritten at http://www.gcccd.edu/online/fac/. More will be coming soon.
The section containers that were created for the summer semester have incorrect instructions on how to make your containers available. The Bb 9 way of making a course available can be found at http://www.gcccd.edu/online/tutorials/bb/course-availability-9.pdf. In short, the steps are:
Control Panel > Customization > Properties > Set Availability (yes or no) > Submit.
Other resources for Blackboard 9 are the videos that Blackboard has created which you can find at http://ondemand.blackboard.com/r9/index.htm. They're really done quite well.
And as always, please contact me if you have any questions!
