Blackboard is Coming Soon!
When Blackboard announced that it would gradually phase out support for Angel following its acquisition of the company in May 2009, TLT began a comprehensive review of potential replacement Learning Management Systems. The culmination of this process will take place in Summer 2013 when we launch Blackboard Learn 9.1 here at KUMC.
Blackboard Learn 9.1 is an industry-leading "next-generation" LMS offering a wide range of features ( http://www.blackboard.com/Platforms/Learn/Products/Blackboard-Learn/Teaching-and-Learning/Feature-Showcase.aspx ) to facilitate teaching and learning online. Over the course of the Spring semester, you can expect to see numerous updates and training opportunities from TLT. In the meantime, you can learn much more about Blackboard Learn at the Blackboard website ( http://www.blackboard.com/platforms/learn/overview.aspx ).
