The up to the minute activity stream lets you jump directly into course actions. You don't need to dig through Blackboard to search for deadlines, and you won't miss any assignments and tests.
You can use the activity stream to:
Receive reminders. View pending deadlines or assignments
Check your grades. View any grades on tests and assignments.
Filter you view. Use the filter menu to choose what you see.
Activity stream items are grouped into four categories to make the list easier to scan:
Important: See overdue assignments, tests, and graded discussions. 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.
Today: See everything happening and due in the next 24 hours, including institution-wide announcements about emergency notifications and updates.
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.
