Known Blackboard Issues
Problems Reordering Items
When using Google Chrome or Internet Explorer you cannot reorder items. When reordering items through the drag and drop methods is used the page jumps to the bottom and then back to the top. The menu item, content item, or grade center item I tried to move has not been reordered.
Using the drag and drop method for moving content in the course menu, content area, or grade center does not work properly for Google Chrome or Internet Explorer. However, you may reorder using the contextual menu in Blackboard. The image below shows where you may find that menu in the course menu (student navigation pane). This is a known issue and will be resolved with the next release of Blackboard.
RamPort Login for Blackboard
RamPort will not directly log me into Blackboard.
For users who are connecting to Blackboard from within RamPort, once you click the ‘Blackboard’ button in the top right section of RamPort, they will be prompted to provide their username and password again. This is functioning as normal at this time and the team is looking into ways to adjust this functionality in the future.
