Filenames in Blackboard

There are two known issues in Blackboard that result from improperly naming files.

  1. Submitting a file with an apostrophe in the name will prevent Assignment Inline Grading from rendering the file on the first load
  2. Error submitting an assignment file with a name that is more than 126 characters long and contains spaces

The Online Success website has been updated to better address these issues at http://www.gcccd.edu/online/student/blackboard/bb-filename-conventions.html. Please give students this link so they have this information handy when they're ready to turn in assignments.
