Change in Support for Blackboard/LMS
Blackboard support for on-campus (non-CE) courses will transition to the IT Department beginning in January 2017. A pilot for on-campus courses during fall 2016 was the first step in this transition. The pilot group, consisting of approximately 20 faculty and 1,500 students, provided feedback to expand the use of tools to meet the needs of on-campus students.
Online courses will continue to be supported by the Division of Online and Continuing Education.
Blackboard Learn is the official Learning Management System (LMS) for the University of Massachusetts. The LMS provides faculty with a robust platform for teaching web-enhanced, blended and fully online courses.
