Policies and Procedures

MyMav Policies

This page covers policies regarding the integration of MyMav and Blackboard.  Please note that this information is subject to change.

Blackboard course shells for all UT Arlington credit courses are automatically created for all sections that are officially listed in the MyMav Schedule of Classes, one semester prior to being offered. In addition, instructor assignments and student uploads will be automated based on faculty assignments and student enrollments listed in the MyMav Schedule of Classes.

Please communicate to your appropriate departmental administrator that faculty and TA access to Blackboard course sections is dependent upon section listings and faculty/TA assignments made by the department in MyMav. For new employees, HR assignments in DEFINE and NetID requests to OIT must be in place before MyMav assignments will take effect. Course access is dependent upon execution of the following:

  1. Departmental section listings to Registrar
  2. Departmental assignment of instructor of record in MyMav (*after sections created by Registrar)
  3. Departmental assignment of employee in DEFINE (new employees only)
  4. Departmental request of NetID through OIT (new employees only)

When can faculty assignments be made? After your course section is listed in MyMav, your department administrator needs to follow steps 1 - 2 above (3 - 4 for new employees) for your official section to appear when you log in to Blackboard. Please allow 24 hours after your assignment is made in MyMav.

Important information for teaching assistants: if you have both a faculty NetID and a student NetID, you may need to update your primary account through OIT. Only one NetID will be passed into Blackboard. Usually this will be the student NetID. Contact the Help Desk and request to designate your faculty NetID as the primary account.

Drops and adds will be reflected in your Blackboard course sections based upon transactions that take place in MyMav up to Census date. Students no longer on the MyMav course roster will disappear from your Blackboard course.
