Is there an equivalent way to get access to the file manager in Blackbord 9.1 like I used to in WebCT 4.1? I remember using the _COURSEID_ variable so that I didn't have to hard code the current course into any scripts. Please advise.
The old "_COURSEID_" variable was discontinued after WebCT CE 4.1 and was never available in Blackboard (WebCT) Vista 2-8/Campus Edition 6-8. There is no equivalent in Blackboard LS/Learn either. Best practice with the newer database-driven LMSs like Bb Learn, Bb Vista/CE and Angel is not to use any type of absolute address linking. Also, scripts may not work as expected in these newer LMSs.
Thank you Bob!
