Blackboard Upgrade January 2016

See What's Better WebTile

Our online learning management system (LMS) will be upgraded (and unavailable) the weekend of January 2-3, 2016. We will be moving from Release 9.1, Service Pack 14, to Release 9.1 December 2014. Find out what’s new:

This upgrade will introduce at least two noticeable changes:

  1. Blackboard will be using Single-Sign-On (SSO). While you’ve always used your OWU username and password to sign in to Blackboard, you will now have to click a link to do so. However, it will now also sign you into other SSO systems, such as myOWU and Self-Service, simultaneously.
  2. The look and feel of Blackboard will be freshened up a bit to make it more similar to our new website. We will not, however, be moving any buttons, tabs, or other interface elements.

As always, let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
