Blackboard Discussion Board Updates - August 2013

On August 16, 2013, the Blackboard Discussion Board will be updated.  Instructors will find that the basic functions are unchanged, but the look and feel is improved.  In addition, several enhancements were added, including the ability for instructors to require students to post to a forum before seeing other students’ posts.  A detailed list of changes may be found on the FCLD website here.

In addition, the course theme quick option, denoted by this icon  Blackboard Course Theme Icon  will no longer be available.  This is in keeping with the University’s new branding campaign.

Faculty who have any concerns and/or questions about the updates are encouraged to contact the FCLD Director, Lorelle Wilson, at (860) 768-4253 or
