Why don't my courses show up in BOLT?

If you registered for a course but it doesn’t show up in the course list on BOLT, either your professor is not using BOLT or has not yet made the course active to students.

How do I get help using BOLT?

We will continue to add instructional videos and help documents with step-by-step instructions on using common BOLT tools such as discussions, the dropbox, and grades to this web page.
