Temporary changes to notifications from Blackboard

What is affected?

A change has been made to Blackboard notification settings with immediate effect. Students now only see notifications about due dates and missed deadlines for Blackboard Tests and Blackboard Assignments.  You will no longer receive notifications for due dates and missed deadlines for Turnitin and graded Discussion Forums, Blogs, Wikis, Journals and Blackboard and Turnitin peer grading activities.

Why is this happening?

Notification from Bbtools to students have been temporarily disabled to prevent incorrect alerts being issued on Turnitin assignments.

What do you need to do?

Until the notification issues are resolved, you may want to keep track of submission deadlines using alternative methods
