It is very useful to find out about new bugs and issues as soon as Blackboard write a support page about them. Although many will know this, for those who don't here is how to be notified about new issues and announcements:


  1. Go to
  2. Click on Manage My Article Subscriptions

  4. Tick all the boxes under Learn

  6. You will start to receive emails like this:

  8. I recommend making a rule to put those emails into a mail folder for easy access.

  10. Read the emails each day if you can. Better to know about the issue before an instructor or student reports it
  11. For particularly worrying issues, open the article and click on Follow to receive an update every time that issue is updated.
