Service enhancements: JAVA ADVISORY FOR BLACKBOARD USERS
Certain features in Blackboard Learn rely on Java to work. Oracle has released a client-side Java update (Java Update 7u51) on Tuesday, January 14, that negatively impacts three Blackboard tools: (1) Lightweight Chat, (2) Virtual Classroom, and (3) the ability to upload multiple files in Content Collection within Blackboard Learn. This update contains security requirements that require changes to Blackboard Learn.
