On May 19th, we will upgrade the Blackboard application which will include a new look and feel to the system. The new look is a sleeker and responsive for both desktops and mobile devices. Other than updating the look to make it more appealing, this will help Blackboard become more accessible to users on mobile devices and with learning disabilities. No content will be changed with the new theme. Adding content, assessments and other features will still be available to the community. Here is a link to Blackboard’s site about the theme we are implementing: https://help.blackboard.com/Learn/Administrator/SaaS/User_Interface_Options/Learn_2016_Theme The link includes screenshots on both the desktop browsers and mobile interfaces. If you are currently using the Bb Student app, you will see a similar look and feel.
