Welcome to the Blackboard e-Education platform—designed to enable educational innovations everywhere by connecting people and technology.
Certain features in Blackboard Learn rely on Java to work. Oracle is expected to release a client-side Java update (Java Update 7u51) on Tuesday, January 14, that will negatively impact three Blackboard tools: (1) Lightweight Chat, (2) Virtual Classroom, and (3) the ability to upload multiple files in Content Collection within Blackboard Learn. This update contains security requirements that require changes to Blackboard Learn.
What should you do in the meantime?
