You may notice a number in a box that appears next to your name or next to specific My Blackboard tools. This number means that there is a new item or notification in this tool since the last time you logged in. For example, if the number 8 appears next to the My Grades icon, it means that there are 8 new grades that have been recorded since your last login.
