Blackboard 9 has been released by Blackboard. This release will require quite a bit more training of faculty and students since there is a major overhaul of the interface. It is the first of Blackboard's releases to begin the merge of Blackboard and Web CT, and there are many exciting new features.
The VCCS does not have a time-line in place for an upgrade, but since this will take significant time in training we want everyone to take a peek and begin to think about an approach to these different areas of change in the Blackboard format.
When more information or tutorials are available we will be sure to share them with you, but for now, please see the attachments below and the videos on the product site.
