Blackboard 8 Upgrade

DePaul’s Learning Management System (Blackboard) will be upgraded to version 8 on the weekend of November 29/30. The new version of Blackboard has significant improvements. The notable features are:

  • Wimba integration. Each Blackboard course has a corresponding Wimba room.
  • Improved discussion board
  • Enhanced Gradebook
  • New quiz and assessment methods
  • SafeAssign integration (plagiarism prevention tool – similar to Turn-it-In)

 ITD is providing training for all these new features. I highly recommend that you sign up.
