Blackboard Gets a Facelift

On August 29th we will launch upgrades to our online learning platform, Blackboard. The upgrade will make it easier for students to navigate the learning environment and keep track of what’s most important, whether you’re working on your desktop, laptop, tablet or phone. 

Here’s what to expect: 

  • When you login to Blackboard on August 29, you’ll see a new, fresh look and feel along with a much-improved experience. You’ll also be required to enter your Blackboard username and password the first time you log on.   

  • You will be guided through the new interface with a series of helpful tips and prompts to ensure a smooth transition.  

  • It may take a few hours for the changes to be visible across all networks so some users may still see the old interface initially. In the meantime, you will still be able to access your courses as usual.
