We are excited to announce the latest release of Blackboard Predict. Release notes are available here: https://help.blackboard.com/Predict/Administrator/Whats_New_in_Predict



New Feature - Advisor Batch Emails

Advisors are able to scale email interventions by emailing multiple individual students or entire groups at the same time via a new batch email feature.

  • Advisors can now email up to 500 students at once.
  • Batch emails have blind carbon-copied (Bcc) recipients to address privacy concerns.
  • A copy of the email is added to the advisor notes section for that student and emailed to the sender for their records.


Minor Enhancements:

  • Updated automatically generated downloadable prediction, grade and activity report filenames for clarity.
  • Added a vertical scrolling bar on the course search field drop-down list.
  • Removed "Probability of Passing” course average from the student profile area.


Bug Fixes

  • Resolved issues where certain students weren’t appearing in the advisor student search.
  • Resolved issues where certain courses were not appearing in advisor course search.
  • Fixed an issue with student activity calculations
  • Fixed an issue in Learn Classic courses that prevented emailing students as an instructor
  • Fixed an issue where the advisor filter apply and cancel buttons did not appear.
