Blackboard Upgrades!

Love Blackboard? Well it’s just getting better with a bunch of new updates!


  1. Goal Performance Dashboard: Using the Goal Performance Dashboard, students and instructors track progress toward learning objectives as specified within a degree, certificate, or program. The Goal Performance Dashboard provides a personalized learning opportunity for students to progress through content at their own pace and as they master concepts or skills.
  2. Announcement Date Restriction Default: When creating an announcement, “Not Date Restricted” is now selected by default.
  3. Browser Support: Learn 9.1 now supports the Microsoft Edge browser. Some new browser releases no longer support NPAPI plugins. Without these plugins, some Learn features may not render correctly.
  4. User Interface: Users can navigate from thread to thread without having to return to the main Discussions page.
  5. Bug Fixes: A comprehensive list of bug fixes contained in this release can be found on Behind the Blackboard.
