Status Updates from the Blackboard Team
March 20, 2017
The process of importing the archived courses to the system has begun. We have completed the branding of the new system. We are in the process of testing the environment to ensure it is ready for our community to access it when we go live on April 1, 2017.

We have successfully archived the course materials, and will be importing them to the new system soon. In addition, we are working on branding pieces that will allow users to feel as if they are interacting with Blackboard as normal.
February 14, 2017
As of now, our plan is to move the Late Spring/Summer terms to the new system, then migrate the other data over after the courses close. We are working diligently to coordinate schedules with all parties effected to ensure this process is as smooth as possible. We are looking to have the new system up and accessible by April 1, 2017 to allow the faculty who will be using the system to begin building their courses. The earliest course start date for the new system is May 1, 2017.
