Welcome to the Blackboard e-Education platform—designed to enable educational innovations everywhere by connecting people and technology.
Because of numerous issues with Internet Explorer, Chrome and Safari when using Blackboard, particularly in regards to online testing and submission of assignments or files, it is required that you only use Mozilla Firefox with Blackboard. Students are responsible for issues resulting from the use of other browsers.
Windows 10 and Microsoft Edge Internet Browser
Please note that the Microsoft Edge Internet browser that comes with Microsoft's latest operating system Windows 10 has serious compatibility issues and the continued use of Mozilla Firefox is strongly recommended.
Just a quick reminder to instructors that you control the availability of course sites to students. Prior to making your new course sites available, it is imperative that you make all of your old courses that you no longer use unavailable to students if you have not already done so. To do this, you need to click Customization underneath Control Panel, next click Properties, scroll down to the Set Availablilty section, choose No for the Make Course Available option, then hit your Enter key or click Submit.
New course sites are marked as being unavailable by default and you must click Customization underneath Control Panel, next click Properties, scroll down to the Set Availablilty section, choose Yes for the Make Course Available option, then hit your Enter key or click Submit to make them available when you feel they are ready for your students.
A malicious OneClass Chrome Extension is part of a current phishing scam which, if installed, may send email on students' behalf and also attempts to collect user credentials. The OneClass Chrome Extension is not available directly via search in the Chrome Extensions Store and students are being phished with the following link to install it (CAUTION: DO NOT CLICK THIS LINK):
During installation, the extension requests permissions to "Read and change all your data on the websites you visit". The installation process counts on users' tendency to accept terms without reading. The extension adds a button inside the Blackboard Learn pages to "Invite Your Classmates to OneClass". The plugin will email all the students in a students' class (utilizing Blackboard URLs and resources, which are functioning as designed) to promote the OneClass plugin/product. The plugin also has code that attempts to collect and send the users' credentials (both username and password). Blackboard support is in the process of determining if the code is successful in doing so.
The mail content is:
"Hey guys, I just found some really helpful notes for the upcoming exams for <University Name> courses at https://oneclass.com/s/signup. I highly recommend signing up for an account now that way your first download is free!"
Please DO NOT install this extension, and if you receive an email anything like the one above please DO NOT click anything in the email. Just delete the email.
