Paging Options

You can edit the paging options to specify how many items appear on a page in Blackboard Learn. For example, you can determine how many forums appear on the main discussion board page or how many items appear on the Needs Grading page.

The default is 25 items per page and the maximum number of items is 1,000 per page. Clicking Show All displays all items and causes the other controls to disappear. For performance, the items per page should not be greatly expanded.

Use the following steps to edit the paging options.

  1. Click Edit Paging.
  2. Type a number in the Items per page text box. If the number is greater than the total number of items, then all items appear. If the number is less than one, then one item appears.
  3. Click OK
