Welcome to the Blackboard e-Education platform—designed to enable educational innovations everywhere by connecting people and technology.
In order to troubleshoot and attempt to solve an intermittent Access Denied issue being reported to me, I have made a configuration change to the BbLearn system that may or may not have unexpected results. If you experience any oddities in logging into or navigating through the BbLearn system, please report them ASAP to Campus Support at 479-968-0646 or email@example.com
Do not use special characters like these ! @ # $ % ^ & * ( ) + = |\/ ? “ ‘ : ; ~ in naming any items in Blackboard Learn (assignments, items, discussion boards, forums, threads, posts, announcements, tests, etc.). They can potentially cause errors to occur. It is best to use only letters, numbers, underscore and hyphen.
As the web analytics show that over 20% of ATU's BbLearn users are still using Internat Explorer, and 10% of those are still using either IE8 or IE9, I just want to bump this best practice up to the top of the announcements.
For Blackboard Learn, it is strongly recommended that students and instructors use:
1. The latest non-beta version of Mozilla Firefox (stable channel) for PC and/or Mac computers as it is the most compatible with our Blackboard Learn system.
2. The latest version of Chrome (stable channel) is also a good choice.
While Internet Explorer 9, 10, & 11 are listed as being compatible, there are many common issues being reported due to using IE with Compatibility Mode turned on. If you are going to use IE for Blackboard Learn, please make sure to turn off Compatibility Mode. (Click the Compatibility View button that appears next to the Address bar.)
