This release is necessary as it includes a number of hotfixes, new features, and security updates. This means that Blackboard will not be available for the entire weekend. Following the release, Blackboard will be available on Monday at 08:00 hrs.

The new features in this release include:

  • Functionality allowing content drag and drop from the PC to Blackboard;
  • Integration with dropbox;
  • Sending reminders by e-mail from gradecenter to students or groups.
