Gradebook Issue

There is a known bug in Blackboard which gives students attempting to access their uploaded papers in the Bb gradebook the following error:
“HTTP Status 403, Access to the specified resource ( ) has been forbidden"
This bug is fixed in Blackboard SP9, but Blackboard will not be upgraded to SP9 until after the winter break. To avoid this problem until the upgrade takes place, please see the workaround below:

Do not attach feedback files using the Browse/Attach button, but rather use the attachment option in the visual text box editor (VTBE) to place their feedback files in the VTBE as attachments (see illustration).
