(1) Lightweight Chat
(2) Virtual Classroom
(3) the ability to upload multiple files into Blackboard Learn course files.
This update contains security requirements that require changes to Blackboard Learn. Blackboard is currently making the necessary fixes and plans to release the fixes to SU around January 21.
What should you do in the meantime?
- If you do not install this latest client-side update of Java (Java Update 7u51), you will not encounter issues.
- If you have already installed Java Update 7u51, you can roll back to a previous version of the client-side Java to restore use of those impacted items. If it is not, you can download the previous version.
- If you do not use the three Blackboard Learn tools listed, installing the client-side Java Update 7u51 should not have any negative impact on your user experience in Blackboard Learn.
