Blackboard 9.1 Upgrade December 10th

On Saturday December 10th, UNC's current Blackboard version 9.0 will be upgraded by Blackboard to version 9.1. Final grades cannot be entered by faculty or accessed by students in Blackboard during the upgrade process, but will be available prior to December 10th or after the upgrade has completed, approximately 5PM MST on December 10th. All courses created prior to the scheduled upgrade in the current Blackboard version will be upgraded to the 9.1 version.

Faculty teaching courses during the interim session can reference http://www.unco.edu/blackboard/ for additional support and details regarding the new version. Resources include narrated PowerPoint presentations and video information sessions that provide an introduction to Blackboard 9.1 and its features. There is also a schedule of "hands-on" orientation sessions in December and January that introduce the updated Blackboard interface to new and experienced users and provide practice performing the basic functions necessary to modify and facilitate a Blackboard course in the new version. View the schedule for Blackboard 9 training at http://www.unco.edu/cetl/cetl_workshops/index.html and contact cetl@unco.edu to register for a session.

Documentation and support resources for students can be accessed at http://www.unco.edu/blackboard/student.html. If you have any questions or concerns regarding Blackboard or the scheduled upgrade, please contact the Technical Support Center at: 970-351-4357 or via e-mail at: help@unco.edu.
