What happened?

On Tuesday 9th and Wednesday 10th August 2016, the Blackboard system was updated by colleagues within IT and the Learning Technology Team. The system was made available to all users ahead of schedule at 12pm on Wednesday 10th August.

Why did this happen?

The upgrade ensures the system remains current and it brings a few new features to the system and its suite of tools:

  • Thread-to-Thread navigation in discussion boards
  • Delete Assignment option in the Turnitin Assignments area (please consult your Faculty Learning Technologist before use)
  • Improved screen-casting with Kaltura using the new CaptureSpace Lite tool
  • Video quizzing option using Kaltura

What do I need to do?

No action is required from you. However, should you wish to find out more information about these changes, please visit the ‘Help’ tab within Blackboard.
