What's New in Blackboard Version 9.1?

Blackboard (Bb) will be upgraded to version 9.1 during the break between the fall and spring semesters. The new version of Blackboard 9.1 adds exciting new features and a completely redesigned, modern Web 2.0 user interface. In this hands-on workshop you can see Bb 9.1 in action.

New features of version 9.1 include:
