Do your students submit work using the Blackboard Assignment tool?

26 Nov 2013

If so, please let them know that they should not include any punctuation marks in the file name of their submissions.

Students will not be able to upload their assignments if the file names contain puctuation marks - they should use only numbers and letters.

If you use the Blackboard Assignment tool, please include this information as an announcement in your Blackboard course.

Future upgrades to the system will address this issue but in the meantime please ensure your students are aware of the need to use filenames containing only letters and /or numbers.

Please note this does not impact your students if you use Turnitin/Grademark for online submission.
