Blackboard Upgrade – August 2015

Screen Shot 2015-07-29 at 1.50.20 PM



The San Jacinto College Blackboard system will be upgraded during the period of August 15, 2015 at 5:00 PM through August 17, 2015 at midnight. This upgrade will serve two purposes:

1)    provide enhancements for faculty to support their instructional processes within the system, and
2)    remove old course content from the system for any semester prior to fall 2014 (201510).
An outage will be necessary during this period to perform the upgrade. Additional details will be announced as they become available.

Faculty should take time to archive copies for each of your courses. This process will create a permanent record of the course, including all content and user interactions. Archived copies of courses should be kept in a secure location like your SJC H:\ drive folder. You may find this End of Semester Checklist handy for details on archiving your course(s).

Be sure to watch the following locations for future updates and information on the Blackboard upgrade plan and training opportunities.
