Blackboard Learn

As of December 31, 2019, Blackboard is no longer available to use. Georgetown has completed the move to Canvas.

Blackboard courses between Summer 2014 and Summer 2019 have been transferred into Canvas. Fall 2019 Blackboard courses will be transferred into Canvas in early 2020. Instructors can access old Blackboard courses that have been migrated into Canvas by going to Courses > All Courses in the global navigation menu in Canvas (see under “Past Enrollments” section).

These transferred courses will appear in Canvas with a “BB-” prefix (e.g. BB-ENGL-100-01.Fall2019) in order to avoid overwriting course content that has already been imported or created in Canvas. Also, these transferred courses will not be exact duplicates of the original Blackboard courses. Content like files, items, and announcements will migrate to Canvas; but gradebook items, student enrollments, student work, student grades, or collaborations and discussions will not migrate. See our help page to learn more about the transition from Blackboard to Canvas.

The UIS Educational Technologies team has kept full Blackboard course archives, including student material, that may be accessed by individual faculty request.
