Blackboard App: display content of Reusable Objects

    We are beginning to make good use of Reusable Objects (stored in the Institution content area, deployed in courses) to provide the same information to multiple courses, in a way that allows the content to be quickly updated. Examples would include key staff contacts in a School, or guidance for students on submitting work online, and viewing their feedback.

    Unfortunately, in the app, content items do not display content which is being pulled in from those Reusable Objects - they only display a link.

    Clicking on the link then opens the Reusable Object as an HTML page, without any styles applied.

    Students may not click on the link, and so may well miss important information.

    My request is for the app to actually display the full content of the Reusable Object, as it does in the desktop browser.
