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.

Ny utformning av Originality Report

Tillgänglig för Moodle och Moodlerooms | 18 augusti 2018

SafeAssign Originality Report har fått ett nytt utseende i alla Moodle- och Moodlerooms-miljöer. Nya Originality Report använder Blackboards Ultra-designfilosofi och innehåller ny information om den övergripande risken att en inlämning har kopierats från en annan källa. Det nya rapportgränssnittet är mer responsivt och tillgängligt för skärmläsare än det gamla gränssnittet. Vi kommer snart att arbeta för VPAT-kompabilitet för den här nya designen!

Användare kan växla tillbaka till gamla Originality Report under ytterligare en tid för att underlätta övergången.

Blackboard Learn-användare kan förvänta sig en Learn-uppdatering snart som innehåller den nya utformningen av Originality Report!
