Dear Blackboard Users,
On Monday, March 12th from 9 am to 5:00 pm LIU’s Blackboard Learn environment will be
UNAVAILABLE in order for system maintenance to be performed.
Features in this upgrade include:
1.Several bug fixes and security improvements.
2. Assignments - inline grading tool conversion preparations. To facilitate the change of service from
the existing tool called “Crocodoc” to the “New Box View” service, the LMS Team has to install software supports.
This affects only instructors using the annotation functionality in assignments.
3. Grade display standardization - all gradebook columns online, download, and in My Grades support up
to five decimals, are not rounded, and are consistent for Score and percentage display types. The % symbol
has been removed from cells in the offline download file to ensure values are not rounded.
As always, please contact the IT helpdesk if you have any questions or need assistance.
Thanks for your patience and cooperation,
