Community! I would like to start a thread to collect tutorial materials you may produce in the Box View for Blackboard. For now, there may be some resources available directly form Box. Just to clarify how we got here, Box acquired Crocodoc to compete with Dropbox and they decided to kill the Crocodoc product. This affects our Blackboard… Show more
I can see my attendance reports for sessions < 30 days old, but for sessions older than that, I get "No sessions found within the past 30 days."
We're moving into a brand new, modern office space just a mile away, and everyone is doing some Fall cleaning. There are lots of things here that some of you might want to keep in your own offices as collector's items. Let me know if you want one of the listed items, and we'll ship it out to you!

For example, you can use the to_date() function to specify the format for a give timestamp column. SELECT to_date(timestamp, 'YYYY.MM.DD…
As Blackboard develops the GUI for future releases, including the Ultra Experience (navigation scheme), they need to understand how their client institutions are using tabs and modules, along with institution roles, to target information delivery and "branding." This is a forum to post your use cases, and to explain what you are doing to assign… Show more
Some instructors want to be able to see "everyone" who is connected to a Collaborate session. The current behavior displays the video for the last four speakers. Adding more full video feeds could swamp some users' bandwidths. But maybe there's a way to show thumbnail videos or timed snapshots on the list of Participants. This allows instructors…
This is similar in some ways to Collab Ultra : video thumbnails and choose who to follow but that issue focuses on how the Collab system selects which videos to display. This idea is to allow a way for instructors (or others) to see the "heads" of all in the session. Potentially gives more credibility to the actual attendance and attention span of…
