In October OIT announced that the Blackboard 8 (Bb8) server would be removed from access for previous course materials after the Fall 2012 semester.
After providing a grace period extending into this semester, OIT is now ready to proceed with the decommissioning of the Bb8 server on the morning of Monday, March 18. Thereafter, faculty and staff will not be able to log into Bb8 and access any documents, grades, or other information stored in this system.
So if there are course materials still in Bb8 that you would like to preserve for future courses or as a record of previous work, you will need to act soon to export/archive this material. The OIT How-To Library has several pages that will walk you through the export/archival process.
