This page collects a list of the currently known issues with our Blackboard system. This list will be updated as new issues are discovered or as Blackboard patches the system and fixes issues.
Students sometimes receiving overdue alerts for assignments they submitted on time - This issue tends to occur in courses with groups that have assignments in them and causes students to see overdue messages for the assignment in groups they are not a part of
Files attached to the feedback tool when grading sometimes cannot be downloaded - Sometimes when files are attached to the feedback tool when grading assignments there is an error which causes students to be unable to download the file
Students can edit the descriptions of Discussion Board forums - Students can see the edit button and can use it to modify the descriptions of forums in the discussion board, which they should not be able to do
Rubrics show grades with a number of decimal places - Rubrics will show grades out to five decimal places, regardless of whether the grade number should require them. In addition, numbers are sometimes displayed incorrectly (ie, 12.99999 instead of 13)
Group Discussion Board forums are renamed when student enrollments in groups change - When student enrollments in groups in Blackboard change, they sometimes cause the Discussion Board forums to be renamed to a generic name (the name of the group followed by 1, 2, 3, etc)
