  • New Discussion Board – A new discussion thread details page displays all posts at once, highlights roles of elevated users, allows inline message replies, and more.
  • Updated Calendar – See personal events in the same calendar view as course- and institution-level events, with a new user interface and export options.
  • Global Navigation – Easily navigate to your other Blackboard Learn courses using My Blackboard.
