Updates and Announcements
Blackboard is a resource for online learning available to the entire CUNY community. Faculty members moving their course resources online are encouraged to read Teaching Remotely – Provide Your Course Resources Online, watch the Translating On-Campus to Distance Learning webinar, and the Blackboard Instructor User Guide first, then visit the User Guides section of this Blackboard Resources site for tutorials on many Blackboard topics. Additional Blackboard help can be found at http://help.blackboard.com.
Students and faculty with a pressing question regarding Blackboard use can call after hours support for assistance. This after hours service is available weeknights (between 8:00pm and 8:00am the next morning) and weekends (from Friday night at 8:00pm until Monday morning at 8:00am). After hours support is for help with using Blackboard and not for issues involving CUNY Login or accessing Blackboard. See After Hours Blackboard Support for details.
Blackboard course shells are automatically created for every CUNY course based on CUNYfirst data. Winter Intercession and Spring 2021 courses are being created in Blackboard in early November 2020. Faculty unable to see courses in Blackboard should check their course assignments in CUNYfirst and have their departments follow through as needed if courses have not been assigned to them. If the courses are assigned in CUNYfirst and you are unable to access your courses in Blackboard, please contact your campus Blackboard representative. Courses appear in Blackboard 24 – 48 hours after enrollment or assignment in CUNYfirst.
CUNY CIS upgrades Blackboard annually at the end of December. The Fall 2020 Blackboard upgrade is scheduled to begin on Sunday, December 27th at 12:30 am and is expected to be completed by the close of business on Monday, December 28th. Blackboard will be taken offline and there will be no access to the environment during the upgrade. The downtime required for the upgrade necessitates that the work be performed in the week between the Christmas and New Year’s holidays as this is the only time when classes are not in session on any CUNY campus. However, please note the following important dates for the end of this semester:
