What's New in Blackboard? - 06/11/2018

NIU's May 2018 Blackboard upgrade migrated us from our local servers to Blackboard’s cloud hosting (SaaS) and allowed us to adopt the Q2 2018 Release. The upgrade is largely behind-the-scenes, to reduce the costs of running Blackboard and continue to provide a stable and reliable teaching and learning environment. There are some exciting new features, as well, including a new tool to record attendance and include it in grade calculations, and some enhancements to existing tools.
