Why Does My Blackboard Course Have “TR” in the Name?

Tags Blackboard

When to Use (or Why)?

Starting in Spring/Summer 2024, the modality for "Traditional" (TR) courses will be listed as "In Person" (IP).

The TR, OL, or HY in the course name identifies the modality of the course: 

  • TR = Traditional
  • OL = Online
  • HY = Hybrid

This is used in the assessment and accreditation reporting tool.


No changes are needed unless the incorrect modality was displayed. Make sure the course is listed in the correct modality in Banner. Blackboard will automatically update within 3-4 hours.
