The annual Blackboard rollover will take place during the week beginning 23rd July. New Blackboard courses for the academic year 2018/19 will be available by the end of that week.
An empty Blackboard course will be created for each module code and course instance code that exists on the Akari module manager. You will then be able to create or copy content as necessary for the start of the new academic year.
If you do not have access to a course, and think you should, please consult our guidelines on how to access a Blackboard course as instructor.
Before you copy any content from previous years’ courses, please take a look at our guide to copying content. In particular, we strongly recommend that you copy only content and not assessments. DO NOT copy grade centre settings, since these can cause problems with online grade entry.
Access to 1415 courses
All staff and students currently have access to 4 years’ worth of courses on Blackboard. As part of the rollover, all 1415 courses will be cleared from Blackboard.
