Problem: Menu items for certain course tools do not appear for students, even when they are shown as available and visible to the instructor while edit mode is “Off”.
Solution: We are waiting on a bug fix for this from Blackboard. In the meantime, instructors can make sure these tools are available to students by following these steps:
- Click the green “+” button at the top of the course Menu, and select “Add tool link”
- Enter “Tools Area” in the name box, and select “Tools Area” from the list. Click Submit.
- Click on the new Tools Area link on the course menu.
- If a tool is hidden, it will have “Show Link” next to it. Click the “Show Sink” button next to it to ensure it’s available to students.
