As part of routine system maintenance, ITS is cleaning-up old and unused Blackboard Collaborate recordings commencing Friday 10 June 2016.
ITS will permanently delete all Collaborate recordings created prior to 1 January 2014 unless they have been downloaded between 1 January 2014 and 1 May 2016. If you would like to retain your Collaborate recording/s, please refer to the Bb Collaborate download user guide (accessible when logged in with your RMIT Google account) for information on how to download your content to your desktop or local drive.
Information Technology Services (ITS) is pleased to announce that the Blackboard Notifications function is now available.
This means that you can now receive system alerts and emails when events occur in your Blackboard courses. This includes when assignments are ready for grading (available to instructors only), when new content and tests are available, and where there are new discussion or blogs available.
Where can you find these notifications?
Both instructors and students can access these notifications from:
Your myBlackboard Updates (https://en-us.help.blackboard.com/Learn/9.1_2014_04/Student/030_Nav_My_Blackboard/Updates) and Posts (https://en-us.help.blackboard.com/Learn/9.1_2014_04/Student/030_Nav_My_Blackboard/Posts) pages.
