The first rule of upgrade club is that everyone talks about upgrade club. The purpose of this thread is for anyone doing an upgrade this year to check in, state what version/platform they are on now, and to what version they plan to upgrade. Maybe we can find some useful common ground and exploit some synergies? Last year's upgrade club… Show more
My colleague created a batch of accounts using "Users > Batch Actions > Create Users", but missed out Primary_Institution_Role. I would like to add the Primary_Institution_Role using Feed File method, if I have the users' name & ID, how can I get the EXTERNAL_PERSON_KEY for this batch of accounts?
At a recent meeting of the UK Further Education User Group we ran a session called "Show us your Blackboard" whereby we shared our Learn user interface. From past events, we felt it's always interesting to see what other institutions have done with their system, see how they have customised the interface, and to learn about anything unusual which… Show more
Hello, I have a building block that creates my own type of assessments in course content. This works in a similar way to the standard assessment creation: you go to course content, press assessment and press "Assessment", then you get to a new page were you fill inn assessment information and press submit. My question is this: How can i… Show more
Been developing applications using the REST API and have fallen victim to the 10,000 max call per day limit, which seems a bit near sited. Here is the idea: Add a parameter to the manage REST API Application Portal that allows a developer to set a "max call count" per day per an application. This would allow a developer to manage the load a…
These were given to me by an instructor: We use the course reports tool and Course Activity Overview to record time spent in class. When students consistently spend less than 1 hour in class--and usually only on Sunday nights, we contact them. I also would like to have a request sent to BbL that we are able to delete students from the tool who…
Hey David, we've encountered similar problems - there's a known issue with the Course Activity Overview report whereby it includes data for disabled enrolments in the report. So, if you have 50 active enrolments, and 50 disabled enrolments (say, last year's students), then the report divides by 100 and not 50 to get the average figures. It also…
I was under the impression that if I created an institutional hierarchy, I could assign managers certain rights to their particular part of the hierarchy so that they could easily obtain reports purely on their department's courses? But I've been doing some tests and am struggling! Does anyone know if this is possible...or if there are any… Show more
Hi Sarah, I've just had confirmation from Bb Support that the User Activity Overview report doesn't work with the Institutional Hierarchy - disappointing. If you're interested in BIRT Reporting, Andrew Hulme is your man! Andy's given me an overview before, but it's reasonably complicated; I think you'd need to be a developer to create them -…
I am having troubling locating documentation on how to edit content in a master-slave setup. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
