Bb-CE Alerts for Students

Red X Alert
Problem: When trying to upload a file or attachment, the user sees a Red X in place of My Computer.
Solutions: After logging into Bb-CE at the My Blackboard screen, a Warning Security window will pop-up, click the checkbox next to "Always trust content from this publisher" and then click Run.

Firefox Printing Alert for Bb-CE Users (Important!)
We have found a printing problem with Firefox and Bb-CE. Printing in Firefox, some Bb-CE handout links will cause the printer to hang up in an infinite loop printing pages until the printer runs out of paper. If you are using Firefox, please use the Create Printable View icon to print.

Alert for Microsoft Vista Users
For students and faculty members from the Student View tab using Microsoft Vista, you must follow the directions below so that Learning Modules in Bb-CE will show.

1. Open Internet Explorer.
2. Go to Tools > Internet Options > Security > Trusted sites > Sites.
3. Uncheck the checkbox next to "Require server verification (https:)
    for all sites in this zone."
Type into the Add this Website to the
textbox and click Add.
Click OK.

Do NOT Use Special Characters for Files, Titles or Descriptions
Avoid using special characters (i.e. / ! # : ; @ & \ ?) because they cause errors and other problems in Bb-CE! Special characters cannot be used when naming files, or entering titles and descriptions for files and Course Tools in Bb-CE. Names can include underscores, letters, and numbers.
