When taking a test, hit the "Save Answer" button after each question. This will prevent your browser from timing out, a situation where Blackboard logs you out of your account if it thinks you've been inactive too long. If you are answering an essay or short answer question, click "Save Answer" once every 15 minutes.
Avoid Punctuation in Assignment File Names
When naming files for assignment submissions, avoid using punctuation other than the period. Faculty may not be able to open files with other punctuation in the file name.
