Java plug in certificate pop up box.

If you use a tool in Blackboard that uses a Java plug-in (e.g. Multiple file upload in the content system) you may receive a pop up box asking you to confirm the securitycertificate. Please tick the box that says always trust content from this supplier and click run.

The TEL team are working with our Technical support colleagues to apply a fix to Blackboard to stop this occurring. Once this has been applied and tested we will update this blog.

Late assignment submissions

When an instructor creates an assignment with a due date, the “Create” or “Edit” assignment screen currently tells them, in section 5 “Due dates”,  that “Submissions are not accepted after this date and are marked Missed”. This is an error in the Blackboard language pack and is not the case. Late assignments will be accepted if the submission point is available, and will be marked as ‘Late’ in the Grade Center.
