Q. How can I get rid of the 'Batch already begun' notification?


An error message 'Batch already begun' can appear when visiting the home and Sites & Organisations tab.

This is a rare ‘known issue’ with Blackboard Learn, and is a result of hiding sites and using the ‘Group by term’ feature at the same time. (However the occurrence of the error is rare and doesn't effect all users) 

The solution is to turn off the ‘Group by term’ option using the settings cog at the top right of the 'My Sites' box.

If you do wish to group by term, the only way around this would be to un-enroll yourself from courses you didn’t want to see listed.
