Blackboard Learn Release 9.1 Pilot Program has now officially ended and is now ready to be rolled out campuswide. We thank the faculty and students who participated in the Pilot Program and provided valuable feedback. Blackboard CE8 system will be decommissioned after Spring 2013 - therefore it is very important that all faculty who are currently using Blackboard CE8 system start migrating to Blackboard Learn 9.1 System.
By default, as a security measure, blackboard 9.1 will set all of your courses as unavailable to the enrolled students [Students will see the course listed in their list, but the link will be inactive therefore they will not be able to get in to the course]. Once you are comfortable to allow students in your course, you must follow the process described below to make the course available to your students.
As it has been published and advertised over past 1+ year, Blackboard CE 8 is now retired (Summer II, 2013 was the last session we had on Blackboard 8). We are now using Blackboard Learn 9.1 as our production LMS system.
If you did not do so yet, please migrate your course from Blackboard 8 to Blackboard 9 by following the instruction in the Course Migration article

Thank you for your cooperation

Important Information before you attempt migration:
We require that you go over your course shell, examine the files and contents and remove unnecessary items/files/contents. This cleanup stage is vital to a successful course conversion. If your course is over 150 MB in size, your migration will fail.
