Blackboard Upgrade Complete
We are happy to announce that the Blackboard upgrade has been successfully completed and that the upgraded system is available for your use at this time. You may now access Blackboard at http://blackboard.longwood.edu/.
As communicated over the past several weeks, the upgraded system has some added features, but is functionally unchanged. These features include a new timed assessment auto-submit feature and a "Paste From Word" option that is now available for most text boxes within Blackboard.
The Campus Pack Blogs and Wikis within Blackboard have also been updated. If you've utilized this feature in the past, you will experience a short delay the first time you access every existing piece of content. The delay is to allow the system to upgrade the individual blog or wiki content you entered. After the initial delay for content migration, your blog or wiki item will be ready for use.
If you would like to learn more about the changes in Blackboard and/or Campus Pack, a complete list of training dates are available.
