Blackboard Notifications Unavailable – Update Tuesday 14th April

As previously advised, the Notifications tool in Blackboard has been deactivated and is unavailable for use. This is due to a known issue with Blackboard and impacts the following modules:

  • My Tasks
  • Needs Attention
  • To Do
  • What's New

In order to reduce confusion whilst Notifications is unavailable, ITS has deactivated the above modules. These modules will no longer be available for viewing via Course home pages.

ITS are continuing to work closely with Blackboard to resolve this issue however we don’t have a resolution date at this time. Please note that a number of universities using Blackboard are also affected. Rest assured ITS and Blackboard are treating this matter as a high priority. Further updates will be provided and the modules reactivated once the issue is resolved.

Please note that the above issue does NOT impact Blackboard’s email functionality via tools such as:

  • Announcements email
  • Course email
  • Daily Dashboard email
