Blackboard Upgrade Completed

WT2014 courses, placement testing remain on separate server

January 10, 2014 11:40 AM

DoIT has completed the upgrade to Blackboard version 9.1.13. Winter 2014 courses remain on a separate server and will be merged into the main production system after the start of the Spring 2014 semester. In addition, all January placement tests are being conducted on the separate winter server, too.

Right now, our focus is to prepare for the Spring semester, including refinements to the main tabs and modules in Bb and updating Blackboard FAQs. If you notice any major issues or need help, please submit an RT (Request Tracker) ticket via the myUMBC Help Menu. See also DoIT's Tips for Getting IT Help.

FYI: There have been many new features since Bb was upgraded to version 9.1.9 a year ago. You may want to review the What's New in 9.1.12 and 9.1.13, which we are running now.
