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 will see Bb 9.1 in action.

New features of version 9.1 include:

  • Changes to support instructor efficiency
    • simplified management of course content
    • improved grading
    • create assessments in less time
    • improvements in monitoring student activity and progress
  • Course Wikis
  • Blogs and Journals
  • Group Tools
  • Mash-ups (integrate Web 2.0 resources from youtube, slideshare, and flickr)
  • Enhanced Assignment tool (group assignments available)

Note: The digital dropbox is no longer available in version 9.1. The Assignment tool replaces the digital dropbox. We will cover how to use the assignment tool in this workshop.
