The notification system alerts you when events occur in your courses such as when items need grading, when new content and tests are made available, and when you have unread discussions and blogs. Notifications are generated automatically whenever their associated events occur.

Your institution determines if notifications are enabled and the settings that users are allowed to control.

Notifications are delivered in the following ways:

  • My Blackboard: The Updates page displays notifications for all of your courses and the Posts page displays unread discussions, blogs, journals, and wikis.
  • Email messages: If your institution enables this feature, you can select this option.
  • Home Page modules: Within a course, the Home Page modules display notifications for that course only.
