Blackboard will continue to be located at http://blackboard.american.edu after the migration to Blackboard 9.1
Will my work ever disappear, even briefly?
Blackboard services will be unavailable for the night of August 7, 2010.
Will Blackboard 7 be available in the fall?
You will be able to see old courses on a Blackboard 7 server in the fall, but all fall courses will only be in Blackboard 9.1.
Deletion of Old Courses to Improve Performance of the Server
We plan to remove all courses created prior to Fall 2006 in order to improve the performance of the new Blackboard 9.1 server. We first announced this change in February 2010 and provided a website where you could request the preservation of Spring 2006 and earlier courses. If you used this site in February, you do not need to request the preservation of your courses again. If you would like to request this preservation for the first time, please visit this link.
Who can I contact with my questions about the migration to 9 or the deletion of courses?
