Project Update: Blackboard Software Upgrade May 13/14

From Saira Rachel Mall, Educational Technology Liaison,
Centre for Teaching Support & Innovation (CTSI)

Blackboard Upgrade: May 13 – 14, 2011.

The University of Toronto will upgrade Blackboard to version 9.1 (the most current version) on May 13th and 14th, 2011.

The new version includes several new features as well as a large number of bug fixes. The upgrade will be applied to our existing system, so all existing courses will continue to function in the new version. No migration will be required by Instructors. Feature documentation will be forthcoming on our Documentation and Help site. New tools include Wikis, Textbook information, Mashups, Lesson Plan and Rubrics. Enhancements have been made to the Grade Center and the Content Collection.
