A New Look & Feel for Blackboard Learn: What it means to you

 

TAMU-CC faculty and students! As we head into the new semester, we’ll be rolling out some exciting updates that will enhance your experience with Blackboard Learn. These updates – featuring an updated look and feel and a better mobile experience - will be available starting May 15, 2019.

Here are some of the key improvements that you can expect to see:

  • Modern Look & Feel: With updated colors, fonts, and spacing, you’ll notice a more modern and visually appealing look and feel. The new responsive design will improve accessibility of the online course user interface.
  • Consistency Across Your Devices: Expect a more uniform experience across all your devices, making it easier for you to switch from your laptop or computer to your phone or tablet.  
    • Please note that with this update, course themes will no longer be supported to further enhance consistency across courses for students.
  • A Better Mobile Experience: With more tools and features optimized for your mobile browser, it’ll be easier for you to complete activities on-the-go from your phone or tablet. And, for quick and easy access to your courses, download the Blackboard Instructor app or Blackboard app for students, available for iOS, Android and Windows devices.

If you have questions about these updates or about using Blackboard Learn, contact the Office of Distance Education and Learning Technologies at 361.825.2122 or email odelt@tamucc.edu.
