A reminder! On December 26th and 27th, Blackboard will be upgraded from Service Pack 7 (SP7) to Service Pack 9 (SP9). During those two days there will be no access to Blackboard. Other services will not be impacted during this upgrade. Be sure to look for upcoming training sessions on the new features of BB 9, if you have not already enrolled in one.
When preparing for your classes next semester, consider integrating Web 2.0 tools into the curriculum, where appropriate. Watch this video, which demonstrates how to do this in the new upgraded Blackboard platform.
