What's New in Blackboard 9.1
Friday, August 10, 2012 from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM
Blackboard 9.1 is Here!
The Faculty Development Den and Blackboard (Bb) Office has now migrated to Blackboard Learn, release 9.1 as of Summer 2012.
Blackboard really listened to the problems that many instructors were having that perhaps even kept you up at night. Blackboard 9.1, has enhanced their platform by combining some features to foster student engagement, supporting education efficiency and the new interface provides users with more accessible management of courses. So what’s new? We’re glad you asked.
New Features include:
· Improved accessibility
· Fewer “clicks”
· Embedded help
· More intuitive user interface
· Updated Grade Center
· Additional features
Now that you have gotten a taste of what’s new. Let us also list what’s gone.
Say Goodbye to:
· Digital Drop Box
· Electric Blackboard
· Announcement Filter
· Control Panel
· The “Welcome” Page
Our office will be offering a series of workshops to faculty so that you have the opportunity to learn more about Blackboard 9.1 and some of the new features.
Because Bb 9.1 is NEW, has a completely different look and feel, and FALL semester is rapidly approaching, we encouraged you not to wait until the last minute to get acquainted if you have not already done so. We STRONGLY recommend registering for the introductory workshop session entitled: “What’s New in Course Delivery” as a starting point.
If you are unable to attend one of the workshops, additional workshops will be offered towards the end of the Fall Semester. Again, don’t wait until the last minute to get on track!
For more information regarding the workshops, feel free to contact email@example.com. We look forward to seeing YOU in our classes!
