Q. My students tell me they are submitting assignments, but sometimes I get an “HTTP 404″ error when I click on the filename. What does this mean, and how can I view these student assignments?
A. Files submitted on Blackboard should have names that include only alphanumeric characters, hyphen, and underscore. If your students use other characters in their filenames, it is possible that you will not be able to view or open their files.
The solution is for students to rename their files without special characters and then resubmit their assignments.
