Blackboard is now available

Update 12/29/2018: The Teaching Learning Technology Center has successfully upgraded Blackboard to the “cloud”. The move to the cloud will ensure downtime is minimized, while allowing Blackboard to deliver new features, fixes, and updates more frequently and with little to no downtime.

In your dashboard, the Blackboard app will now appear at the bottom. You may click on the app to drag-and-drop it to the top. You will also receive a notification that you have been “assigned Blackboard – SaaS”.

The Blackboard experience will remain the same, but it will have increased stability, data recovery, and faster updates. Learn more about the new features in the Blackboard update here.
