Getting Started

New to Blackboard? Need a refresher? Here are links to some things you’ll need to know to get everything set up and ready to go for the semester.

Blackboard Updates

Blackboard has had a few updates over the past few months, including one just last week. What does that mean?

The most recent update didn’t change much in terms of functionality or features. It did, however, ensure that all the newly requested integrations for fall are deployed and ready to go.

There were more major updates to both Blackboard and Blackboard Collaborate earlier this year, however. Learn more about those here:
