Blackboard discussion board quirks

Blackboard recently brought to our attention two discussion-board related quirks that it considers to be functioning as designed:

  1. Discussion Board replies do not auto-expand beyond the 11th reply
  2. Expand All button does not work in discussion boards with more than 11 replies

If you’re teaching or taking a class that heavily uses Discussion Boards, you’ll probably encounter these issues. If there are more than 11 replies on any given discussion board, there is no way to auto-expand them–you must click on each individual post to read it.
