Here comes the Bb update

I’m looking forward to next week’s Blackboard update from 9.0 to 9.1 – some fixes are coming your way that I know you will like.

See a preview video courtesy of our friends at KCTCS (thanks, Paige!).

Here are a few of the goodies you can expect:

  • The Grade Center is now located directly on the Control Panel (no extra click to drop down a a menu for it).
  • New content items will be available, including embedded YouTube videos, Flickr photos, and Slideshare presentations!
  • Emailed announcements will include the text of the announcement in the email.
  • The student assignment button will be a ONE-CLICK OPERATION instead of two clicks. Hurrah!!
  • No more error messages when students save all of their test questions.

Bb 9.1 will be ready for use at 8am on Tuesday, May 11. Be aware that the campus Bb system will be unavailable from 12:01am until 8am on May 11 so that the update can take place.
