Notifications Dashboard

The Notifications Dashboard displays notifications of additions and changes to items in your course. These changes and additions are those made by students or instructors. Types of notifications include Alerts, To Do list, What's New, and Needs Attention. You can specify the delivery method for notifications and how they are displayed. Changes to items such as course content, assignments, or assessments can generate different notifications. For example, when your instructor creates an assignment and makes it available, the system automatically creates the appropriate notifications. The following are types of notifications that may display on My Blackboard: · Alerts - Reports additions and changes to course content. The module displays the number of new items for each content type and links to a Details page for each course. It displays items going back seven days. To Do ­ Lists upcoming course assignments and those that are past due. Can search by date for items that are due. Due dates are defined by your instructor. What's New - Reports changes once a day. You can see what has changed the first time you log in for the day. Any changes made after you log in do not appear in the module until the next day unless you click Refresh. Needs Attention ­ Lists items requiring immediate attention.
