Learning Systems Announcements

Put Some Tech in Your T&L

Blackboard building blocks will be updated Monday, January 5, 2015, from 2:00am until 6:00am. There will be a brief interruption in access to the components being updated (and any that are related to them), therefore it is recommended that you NOT submit assignments, take quizzes or enter grades during this time.

Note: the Blackboard system WILL still be available during this time.

Additional Information

Building Blocks Scheduled to Be Updated on Jan 5, 2015:

Goal, Content Editor, Partner Cloud, Self and Peer Assessment, Achievements, Alerts, Caliper, Course Packages – ANGEL Import, Data Integration – Snapshot XML, Group Manager, Retention Center, SCORM Engine, and Turning Technologies.

After these updates, students will see a new interface for registering their Turning Technology clicker devices.  The registration tool remains in Blackboard courses, but students will be automatically taken to the Turning Technologies Website to manage their account and devices. Updated information will be posted in our askIT knowledge base soon.

Please note that Blackboard building block installations and updates are normally scheduled for the 2nd Monday of each month, from 2:00am until 6:00am. (To minimize disruption, this schedule may be adjusted based on critical semester dates.)

For any questions, concerns, or assistance, please contact the Technology Services helpIT Center at 828-2227, submit a help request ticket at http://www.ts.vcu.edu/helpit-center, or send an email to blackboard@vcu.edu.
