New Version of Blackboard in the summer

Filed under: Blackboard, news — jobadge @ 10:00 am

ITS intend to move directly to Blackboard Version 8 (missing out version 7.3) for the next academic year. A test system with your current course content will be available sometime in August with a view to a final upgrade in September.

The main changes are:

  • New version of the Gradecentre (a completely reworked gradebook)
  • Blackboard’s discussion boards have been redesigned to include options for tree view
  • Content Collection will have a recycle bin from which deleted items can be restored.
  • course links into the Content Collection are preserved when courses are copied.
  • Visual Text Box Editor (VTBE) support for Mac users
  • Windows Vista and Office 2007 compatible
