    Leganto Release Notes - February 2020

    Main Enhancements

    Student View Error Message for Blackboard

    February 2020 Leganto URM-120366
    When using Blackboard, some functionality provided within reading lists may not be accessible if instructors have enabled the LMS's student view. To make sure that instructors are aware of this, they will now receive the following message when they access a reading list while the LMS's Student View is enabled:
    While using your learning management system’s student view, some functionality may not be supported in the reading list. Please exit the student view and then open the reading list’s student view (Reading List’s main menu > View list as a student).
    Enabling the Leganto reading list's student view gives instructors student permissions. To gain Leganto reading lists student permissions, instructors will need to disable the LMS's student view, log in to Leganto, and select View list as student, as shown below:
