When submitting Labs and Assignments, only specific file formats are allowed for the attachments. Blackboard and the Windows PCs used at EACC cannot open and view files submitted in the PAGES format of a MAC PC and files from Google Docs. These files MUST be attached in MS Office document (DOC or DOCX), Adobe Portable Document (PDF), standard Rich Text (RTF), or photo/scanner (JPG) format. Please make every effort to use the compatible format options listed. Plain text is also compatible, but it doesn't support images or tables, so avoid using it when graphs and tables are involved with the submissions.
Also, it's important to note that any business the college conducts with the students electronically is done through the students' assigned EACC e-mail accounts. This includes message through Blackboard. So, please regularly check your EACC e-mail for messages and keep your mailbox cleaned of unnecessary messages. If you don't know what your EACC e-mail address/account is, or if it doesn't work, contact Ed Adams (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Bob Fowler (email@example.com) in the EACC Computer Center for assistance.
If you do not have Microsoft Office available to you on your computer, you might consider downloading and installing "Apache Open Office". It's a free download, and it can open and save documents in the Microsoft Office formats. Here is the web link:
If any of your courses require the Respondus LockDown Browser for taking exams, and you experience difficulties in accessing those exams, please check to make sure you have followed these steps in the use of the Respondus LockDown Browser.
