Tips for better use of Blackboard – browser and assignment submissions

Do not use Firefox 3 when uploading assignment files. If you do try to use it to upload an assignment file, a popup message “Please enter a valid file” appears. Whatever file type or name you use, you will not be able to upload it. Use IE 6.0, IE 7.0, or Firefox 2.0.

When submitting assignments in Blackboard, students have a single submission attempt. If you have submitted a file other than your final attempt of your assignment, please get in touch with your teaching staff who will be able to clear your attempt. This will allow you to resubmit your final copy.
