Important information regarding GDPR compliant plugins

As Blackboard continues to build on our existing privacy practices, we have extended that focus to our Blackboard Open LMS 3rd party plugins. To ensure 3rd party plugins have implemented the necessary Moodle privacy code and support the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), Blackboard has been proactively reviewing and reaching out to vendors for updates and recertification of their plugin. In an effort to improve visibility of 3rd party plugin privacy compliance, Blackboard will be updating the Open LMS Plugin Matrix to reflect compliant vendor plugins which have been re-certified or are in the process of recertification.

What this means for you:

  • Any 3rd party plugin that hasn't been re-certified and doesn't include the required Moodle privacy code won't be enabled on your Open LMS site.
  • Any 3rd party plugin that's been enabled on your site but is non-compliant can remain enabled on the your Open LMS site. You can choose whether to disable a non-compliant plugin.
  • Any 3rd party plugin that's non-compliant with the Open LMS v3.7 release will be moved to Unsupported status. All support requests will be redirected to the vendor. No updated plugin will be included with Open LMS until the privacy code is implemented.
  • Any 3rd party plugin that remains non-compliant may need to begin End-of-Life status and be removed from the Open LMS codebase. Target for removal of non-compliant plugins is the Open LMS v3.8 release.

For more information, please reach out to your Engagement Manager.

SafeAssign 도움말 페이지에서 변경 사항이 계속 전달될 예정이므로 해당 페이지를 팔로우하여 새로운 정보를 확인하십시오!

손쉬운 전환을 위해 어느 정도의 기간 동안 사용자는 기존 독창성 보고서 디자인으로 다시 전환할 수 있습니다.
