Blackboard is No Longer Available for Teaching

All Courses Are Now in Canvas

  • From May 20, 2019 to December 31, 2019 Blackboard will be available only for viewing and downloading course content.
  • Beginning December 31, 2019 faculty, students, and staff will no longer be able to log in to Blackboard.
  • If you anticipate needing access to past course materials, we strongly recommend you download and store them in Box, a network drive, or your own computer by  December 31, 2019. We have also created a wizard to help you decide the best method to migrate your Blackboard data.
