Blackboard June 2019 Update


As of June 3rd, 2019, Blackboard’s home page and base navigation have a fresh new look! Your current courses have not changed, but you are invited to pilot Ultra Courses, a new form of course design. If you are interested in joining the pilot, contact  

Understanding the Changes

To review the new navigation, how to find classes, and manage their availability, see these resources:

Please be aware of changes to the following tools and settings:

  • The Qwickly tools have been discontinued due to changes in compatibility and licensing costs. You may manage course availability through the new workflows on the Courses page. At this time, you may use the course Announcement, Email, or Messages tool to send mass communications to all students in a single course.
  • Blackboard has discontinued custom course menu colors through Teaching Styles. You may still customize your course by adding a course banner.
