Using the Date Management Feature

Issue/Question

How do I make several assignments available for students in an efficient manner? 

Environment

  • Blackboard

Cause

Date Management will let you edit the visibility dates and the due dates for items all in one location.

Resolution

If the assignments are actually set to be unavailable to students, then you must edit each one to make them available. You may follow these instructions only if the assignments are not accessible due to date restrictions.
