Another Browser Hint

In the interest of equal time and browser war fairness (have I been watching too much of the political convention?), today I have an IE problem challenge to report.

Symptom: You're making changes in Blackboard, but the changes don't show up right away. But then out of nowhere, they show up 10 minutes later. So for instance, you give a grade to a student in the Grade Center, but poof... it disappears, then magically shows up later.

Solution: This seems to happen most in IE (Internet Explorer). So please all double-check that you have your IE set as follows.

  • From the Tools menu, select Internet Options.
  • Locate the Browsing History section and click the Settings button.
  • Select the option to “Check for newer versions of stored pages: Every time I visit the webpage.”
  • Click OK twice to exit.
