Blackboard Learn is MSU Denver’s newest learning management system and will replace Blackboard Vista in spring 2014, which has been in use since 2006. Blackboard Learn will be piloted by a group of 20 faculty during the Summer 2013 and a much larger group of faculty in Fall 2013. Blackboard Learn will be the default learning management system starting in spring 2014 for the entire campus.
A faculty-driven task force selected the new system last spring and all faculty and staff were surveyed to capture campus-wide input. We are confident that faculty and students will find the numerous feature improvements in the new system very beneficial. For instance, Blackboard Learn provides a plethora of new and exciting tools, easier rollover of content from previous semesters, integration with msudenver.edu mail, better browser compatibility and support for popular mobile devices. Blackboard Learn also improves knowledge sharing, enhances communication, and provides greater flexibility managing content.
