5/31/2017 – Blackboard Retirement

At 11:59PM Wednesday, May 31st Blackboard will be retired, and all courses that were in it will be gone.  CIRT has been working with faculty on migrating courses from Blackboard to Canvas since last summer, but after the shutdown CIRT will no longer be able to migrate any courses.  The links below provide instructions on how to download any last minute courses or grade center data up until 11:59PM deadline.

It is important to be aware that some downloads may take longer than an hour, so it is advised to complete any necessary course exports before 9:00PM 5/31/2017.
