The Blackboard upgrade to SP 14 will negatively impact those who use Assignments in Learning Modules. Students trying to access an assignment in a Learning Module get an error message.
This issue only affects people using assignments in the Learning Module tool. It does not affect people using Assignments in Content Folders.
As a result, it is unclear whether the upgrade will happen as scheduled on May 26th.
The Email notification service from Blackboard Learn will be turned back on Monday March 10th. Students and facutly will again be able to recieve email notifications regarding various aspects of their courses. If you do not want this service you can turn it off by going to the Notifications Dashboard and editing your notification settings.
CIT would like to remind faculty who have material in the old Blackboard Vista system that the BOR will be shutting down the Vista server June 1st. If you have any material you need to export from the system please do so before the deadline. CIT is available to train faculty if you have yet to migrate a course to Learn, or if you need instructions on exporting material you want to keep for the future. We understand that as the semester draws closer to a close, there is less time available, so we will make this announcement periodically until the deadline.
There will be no capability to recover data from Vista after the June 1st deadline.
This action does not affect Blackboard Learn.
The BOR has determined that SafeAssign is now OK to use. The tool has been turned on and faculty can find it under Course Tools.
