Browser Support for eLearning

We have heard from users who have experienced significant eLearning issues when using outdated versions of Internet Explorer. IE 9 and 10 are not supported by Blackboard (our eLearning vendor). If you are using one of these versions, we recommend that you upgrade to IE 11. If you have any questions, please contact elearning@utdallas.edu.

“My Discussions” tool now available in eLearning

The “My Discussions” module is now available for all users in eLearning. We’ve received feedback from many of you saying that faculty and students want to be able to quickly see which courses have unread discussion posts. Now, if you log into eLearning, on the My eLearning page (where you see the list of all of your courses) you will see a box (module) called “My Discussions”. This module will contain a list of any courses that have unread discussion board posts. Each course listed is clickable and takes you directly to the discussions area of that course so that you can very easily get to and read/respond to those posts.

Please let me know if you have any questions. As always, any feedback is very much appreciated.
