Blackboard App: Make file links in Instructor Feedback live

    Under review

    Students are not able to open links to files in the instructor feedback comments. Files linked in the comments box display as the file name (circled in the screenshot below) but have no option to open/download the file. This prevents students from reviewing a rubric in the form of a document or instructor feedback using the review features in Word. I was able to open files in instructor feedback in a previous release of the Blackboard app but this functionality has gone away. It is important for students to have access to feedback in the app no matter what format the instructor uses to provide it. Students may not take the time to open the feedback in their mobile browser or on a computer.
