Blackboard News

Educators spoke. Blackboard listened. Based on feedback from former WebCT and Angel users, Blackboard has improved many of the existing features and added a few new ones. We think you will appreciate the improvements to many of the tools and feature enhancements over the last few months.

What’s New

Here’s a just a few of the new features we think you’ll be excited about:

  • Global Navigation: lets you access course information through an easy to use menu
  • Profile and Profile Card: now lets you share an “about me” description with users
  • Posts: aggregates posts and comments from blogs, journals, wikis, and discussion boards
  • New Content Editor: has vast improvements, easier user experience, and more options
  • Calendar: allows personalization- you can select views and color-code events and courses
