Big Burly Blackboard Upgrade in May

The Maricopa Blackboard Learn System will be upgraded from version 8 to version 9 this May. This upgrade is not minor like our last one. Instead the new version has a completely revamped interface. This is not just a facelift either. The back end has been redesigned to use industry standard CSS, semantic markup and well formatted HTML. We now have Help embedded right in the product and this version allows even users utilizing Assistive Technologies to access any content on Blackboard. View the following video to see a preview of some of the new features and interface:



The following is a view of what our installation currently in Development looks like. Our final version may vary slightly but this is an idea of where you will be starting from when you design your classes this Spring.
