Student notifications

By default Blackboard shows students notifications about their activity and performance, relative to other members of the course. This type of notification has been disabled.

Students can opt in to receiving notifications about assessment deadlines, but our guidance warns them that such notifications are not available for Turnitin. Turnitin deadlines do show up, however, on the Blackboard Calendar.
