The Blackboard upgrade scheduled for summer 2014 will bring multiple changes to the way Blackboard looks and functions. This multi-part news series looks at those changes in detail. All current instructors of record can preview the new Blackboard by logging into https://bbtest.ohio.edu.
This summer's Blackboard upgrade introduces a fundamentally different way of accessing your courses, course tools, and settings: My Blackboard.
My Blackboard replaces the previous central menu in Blackboard. It can be found in the upper right hand corner of your browser window.
Using the icons and text links in the dropdown menu, you can acess:
As part of this update, the "Logout" text link has been replaced by a small power switch icon immediately to the right of the My Blackboard menu dropdown at the upper right of your browser window.
Note: The My Blackboard overview page and video linked below include information about Social Community Tools. Those tools will not be enabled in OHIO's Blackboard server.
