Observer access to a Blackboard course

Blackboard wiki errors

Some students received errors when adding or editing content on Blackboard wikis. A support ticket has been opened with Blackboard about this issue.

Blackboard exam submits early or student unable to save exam questions

A sporadic issue in Blackboard has been reported that causes some Blackboard-delivered exams to be submitted before they are completed. This issue has impacted a small number of students taking some exams. Blackboard support technicians are continuing to work on this issue. An error statement about no start time can be found at the top of the test access log if this is the test issue. Contact the FRC at frc@ua.edu for more information or assistance.
