The next Blackboard upgrade will take place on Monday, January 6, 2015 at 5pm. The district-wide Blackboard system (for both Chabot and LPC classes) will be upgraded from Blackboard 9.1 Service Pack 13 to the Blackboard 9.1 April 2014 release.

While this is not a major upgrade, it includes some new features and fixes from Service Pack 14 and the April 2014 releases. Features and functions that will be added after the upgrade include (not a complete list):

  • An updated look for the My Grades area for students, which makes it easier for them to view feedback from the instructor.

  • SafeAssign integrated into regular Assignments. And the look of the SafeAssign Originality Report has been updated.

  • Course Message notifications: Those using Course Messages can now choose to receive notifications of new messages within their Blackboard account or via email.

  • Test Total Points Adjustment: This enhancement address several related needs, all revolving around the total points possible for tests, and needing to adjust the total points possible.

  • A "Score Attempts Using" drop-down list has been added to the Test Options and Create Assignments pages.

More details of the new features & fixes, including tutorials and videos, will be posted shortly.
