Blackboard 9.1 comes to UDC

Go to to access the site
Blackboard 9.1 is HERE.  While not a total redesign, the latest version [see What's New] of the Learning Management system allows faculty an opportunity to interact with students in new ways.  

Many of the Web 2.0 tools which have existed outside of academia are now embedded within the Blackboard.  Blogs, wikis, journals, and electronic portfolios are just a few of the enhancements to the new system.

Click here for an annotated version of the Blackboard user's guide which has quick links to many of the new features.
