Activity Stream

The up to the minute activity stream lets you jump directly into course actions. You don't need to dig through Blackboard to search through the system and miss submissions from students. 

You can use the activity stream to:

  • Follow student discussions as they happen, including the latest submissions.

  • Take note of how many submissions are ready to grade.

  • Receive reminders about personal events and meetings.

  • Enjoy a bird's eye view of course activity and direct access to course items.

  • Filter your view. Use the Filter menu and choose Show All, Assignments and Tests or Grades and Feedback.

Activity stream items are grouped into four categories to make the list easier to scan:

  • Important: Students see overdue assignments, tests, and graded discussions that need their immediate attention. The number of items in this section makes up the count shown by Activity Stream in the list where your name appears.

  • Upcoming: View your top five events that will happen in the next seven days. Select Show More for a complete list. This section doesn't appear if you don't have upcoming events.

  • Today: See everything happening and due in the next 24 hours, including institution-wide announcements about emergency notifications and updates. If you added course announcements, they appear here or in the Recent section for students.

  • Recent: If you haven't checked in for a bit, view stream items that were previously in the Today section over the last seven days. Students always see reminders about overdue work in the Important section.
