Fall 2021- Your Decision: Brightspace or Blackboard ?

All Summer and Fall 2021 all courses will be available for faculty access on both platforms.

For Summer and Fall 2021 courses only, you may change your course LMS preference at any time before you activate the course in the chosen LMS. In January 2022, while you will no longer be able to view your course content on Blackboard, data for all past Bb courses will remain available for migration. Here is a quick check-list to follow for both:
