Grade Center Secondary Display Cannot be Set Back to None on Calculated Columns

If a calculated column's secondary display is set to anything other than 'None', the column can then not be changed back to 'None'.

 This is a known issue with the Blackboard software.  A fix for this issue is anticipated in late 2015.

Search Results for Users Not Displaying Properly

When instructors search for users to add to their courses, the list of names returned by the search does not toggle past the initial screen of results.


This is a known issue with the Blackboard software.  Instructors can sort the returned list of results by first name (click on “first name” at the top of the column) and the screens will toggle to allow for the search.

Email Messages Contain "do-not-reply" in From Field

Why does the “from” field on the header of emails received for the UTC Learn system contain the email address 


The use of the do-not-reply email address is behaving as the Blackboard LMS has designed.  This “dummy” email address is used to allow the system to comply with the Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting & Conformance (DMARC) policy.  This means that the use of the do-not-reply portion of the email addresses allows the Blackboard system to tell receiving email systems that the email is not spam or junk email so that it is not automatically filtered.

If you do wish to reply to the email you receive, the email will address properly back to the original sender.

Photo Roster Tool Is Missing

Instructors can no longer see the Photo Roster tool under the Course Tools option of the navigation menu.

Photo Roster will not be available for the fall 2015 semester.  Photo Roster is a 3rd party tool and updates are no longer provided to Blackboard subscribers. While this tool will not be available in fall, you can still view photos of students enrolled in your classes by accessing the detailed class list in Banner. With ongoing Banner upgrades, we anticipate that the photo roster tool will be available again in UTC Learn in the near future.

The online attendance tool is no longer a vendor supported product and is not available for use.  This tool is not the Academic Acknowledgment Activity that is required for students to complete each semester.

Ability to Merge Classes for Instructor is Missing

The tool that an instructor has used in the past for merging courses is no longer available within the course.

Merging of course sections now requires a step performed at the Blackboard administrator level.  As a result, if you would like course sections to be merged, please send a request through email to UTC Learn ( In this email, please list the CRNs to be merged.  

Please make this request at least two days before the semester begins.  Once the terms starts, course sections cannot be merged.

Single Course User Participation Report Not Functioning Properly

The “single course user participation report” generated by an instructor of a course gives the error message that the “file format and extension don’t match” and a the file is blank when the user attempts to open the file.

The file format and extension error is expected behavior because the file produced is actually an xml spreadsheet that is given an xls file extension.  The blank data is a known issue with Blackboard.
