Bb Best Practices

- Test Taking

  • Use a computer with a wired connection,
    i.e., Avoid mobile devices and wireless (WiFi) connections.
  • Use only Bb navigation buttons and links.
  • Click links or buttons once and wait as necessary.
  • Follow the Test Taking Tips.
  • If you encounter an issue, contact your instructor.

- Submitting Files

When submitting assignments, attaching documents, uploading files

  • Use only letters, numerals, hyphens, and underscores in the file name.
    - Other characters or spaces may corrupt the file and make it unusable.
  • Limit the file name to 64 or fewer characters.
  • Close the file and quit the file's application before uploading.
