This page identifies software defects within UNM Learn that affect core functionality, less critical issues that users might assume is working correctly, and issues that impact a majority of users. The issues on this page are classified as "bugs" within the software, and are reported to the vendor for resolution. For other important issues to be aware of within UNM Learn that are not classified as bugs, be sure to check the Frequently Asked Questions by Students page.

Tip: Some issues (including some not listed on this page) only appear in specific browsers. If you are having difficulties doing something with one web browser, you can try a different browser to see if it will work there.
Area Issue/Workaround (if available)

After submitting an assignment this message appears: "The file is being converted. The estimated wait time is X seconds. You must refresh the page to view the converted document." The message does not update automatically once the process is complete.

Workaround: Refresh the page to view the converted document.


When Instructors, Teaching Assistants and Graders use the Inline Grading tools to comment on student work, those annotated files can be downloaded as PDFs. Due to variations and potential issues in the way browser-based software displays PDFs, certain annotations may not display when viewing these PDFs using web browsers (e.g., Chrome, Safari, Edge, Firefox).

Workaround: Users should download and view annotated PDF files directly in a dedicated PDF viewer (e.g., Adobe Acrobat DC, Acrobat Reader DC).

Blackboard mobile app

The Blackboard mobile app may not contain all the functionality and content of UNM Learn. If something does not appear as it should, we recommend using a computer with a supported browser. For more information, see Blackboard Mobile Documentation.

Kaltura Mashup Videos and Course Copy

Some embedded Kaltura Media Mashup videos that have been linked in a previous course and copied forward may be broken and generate the following error when instructors or students click to play them: “Either you are not logged in or you do not have the appropriate privileges to perform this action.”

Workaround: Contact your instructor or Learn Support with details regarding the course and location of the video.
