How To Identify Different Sections of the Same Course

For many faculty members, it's typical to teach more than one section of the same course in a term, often in a different block, or different format, or both.

  • Our new section numbers, now referred to as the CRN (Course Reference Number), are now simply 5-digit, unique numbers that do not contain any codes or information about the block, semester, or University location in which the course is offered.
  • The My Blackboard module in on the myWilmU Faculty Home page also only lists the course term and name, and not the CRN or other information.

This means it takes a few extra steps at first to identify which section of a course your teaching is in which block, location, or format.
