Never Miss a Blackboard Alert with Notifications

When students have all notification settings enabled, it is probably impossible for them not to view the notification. There are currently 20 notification types that can be viewed within My Blackboard, Dashboard Modules, Email, as Push Notifications on a smartphone (Mobile Learn), as an SMS Text Message, and as a Text-to-Voice call.

NOTE: It is up to each institution to choose which notification mediums they want to enable.
