Blackboard is available in a new version. The new version makes a few improvements without substantial changes to the interface.
Our Blackboard system was upgraded from version 9.0 to version 9.1 during a period of scheduled maintenance (May 16–18). This upgrade brings improved functionality to existing Blackboard tools and does not include any major changes to the existing interface.
To learn more about the improvements to Blackboard, please see the Library's “What's New page”: http://www.library.upenn.edu/courseware/whatsnew.html.
To assist instructors with this transition, the Library has scheduled workshops and walk-in hours. For more information and to register, please see the following link: http://wic.library.upenn.edu/wicshops/bb.html.
The schedule for regular maintenance is posted here: http://www.library.upenn.edu/courseware/downtime_schedule.html. In addition, Blackboard may be unavailable every Saturday from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. for weekly maintenance.
