Blackboard can send you email notifications to let you know when content has been updated — to set this up:
- Log in to Blackboard.
- Click on your name in the top right of the screen.
- Choose Settings, then Edit Notification Settings. You can either choose to turn on notifications as a daily digest or individual messages. The Daily Digest is sent each day at 11pm. You can also choose to receive due date reminders for upcoming tests, assignments, etc.
Your notifications will also appear in the Updates and My Announcements section of your Blackboard page. You can't remove old notifications but if you click the Settings cog in the top right-hand side of the My Announcements tile (the cog is invisible until you mouse over it), you can choose to only have announcements for today, the past seven days, or the past 30 days showing.
