Summer each year allows a window of opportunity for Learning Technology to update Blackboard to the latest version, containing new features and fixing a number of niggles. This year, the upgrade will occur on the evening of Sunday 20th July into the morning of Monday 21st July.  During this time, there will be no access to Blackboard up until (we expect) Monday afternoon once we have carried out testing to make sure everything is running as expected.

Webinar 23rd and 24th July @ 14:00

To follow on from the upgrade, we are offering a short webinar where you can find out what the new features are and anything that you may need to be aware of.  There aren’t too many changes this time, so we don’t anticipate that the webinar will be a long one, but it will give you the opportunity for an overview and also ask questions to our team of Learning Technologists. The link you will need to join the webinar is:


You can also access it via the Staff Development -> Staff Webinar Area under ‘Communities‘ in Blackboard Any questions, please contact the Learning Technology Development Team on ext. 7754 or [email protected]
