Known Issues

If you're using an iPad to grade students in Safari, and you're having trouble scrolling right through the Grade Center columns, click the down arrow to the right of where it reads "Grade Center: Full Grade Center" and select "turn screen reader mode on"​. 

Due to mobile responsive design, screen sizes 1024x768 and lower will cause Course Menus to be automatically hidden.  To be displayed, the browser window will have to be manually expanded.

From the Needs Grading screen, faculty will choose an assignment to grade, select that item, and select Grade All.  Things appear fine, but after 5 minutes or so the instructor is ejected from the Needs Grading screen and back to the Grade Center.  The instructor will then have to go back to the Needs Grading window and continue.  Blackboard Support has acknowledged that this is a bug in the system and they are working on a fix for a future release.  

If you are encountering any other issues or need additional help please contact the TTC​
