Blackboard Help


View your dashboard to see new course and organization activity, including:

  • Announcements
  • Content Items
  • Assessments
  • Grades

If you’d like to be notified as soon as dashboard activities occur, adjust your push notifications in the Settings menu.

The highlighted number, or unread count, next to the course name indicates new activity in your courses and organizations, which are reflected in your dashboard. Unread counts are only supported on Android.

The dashboard feed is sorted chronologically and color-coded by course or organization. You’ll also notice that each activity item is accompanied by a related tool icon. For example, the Grades icon accompanies a new grade update.

After you select one of the activity items, the item appears. When you navigate back to the dashboard, that item no longer appears in the list.
