Implementation Announcement

Blackboard Replacement Transition to Begin January 2010

In January 2010 LTS will begin a process of transitioning from Blackboard to a new course management system. This process will be complete by the 2010 fall semester when the new system, Course Site, is in place for all courses.

Three factors contributed to the decision to move to this new environment:

  1. Faculty and student feedback on the annual Blackboard survey has shown an increasing desire for enhanced, easy-to-use features. Course Site provides an intuitive environment, improved grade book, enhanced discussion forum capabilities, along with many other features.
  2. Course Site will allow the University to save significantly on our annual licensing cost, allowing these dollars to be shifted to support other teaching and learning initiatives
  3. A new version of Blackboard has been released which is very different from our current version. The amount of re-training that would need to be done to familiarize faculty, students and staff with this new environment is considerable and would not necessarily result in appreciable improvements for the people using this system

Three very successful Course Site pilot tests were run throughout the spring, summer and fall 2009 semesters. These pilot courses spanned all four colleges and included undergraduate, graduate, and distance education students. Positive feedback from faculty and students provided the impetus for making this move campus-wide.
