Blackboard: Service Pack 11 Updates

We're happy to announce that Fordham’s Blackboard System will be upgraded to Service Pack 11 for the Fall.

This will lead to a variety of improvements, including:

  • A Vastly Improved Content Editor: This larger, more reliable interface allows you to edit your text better than before and also lets you copy and paste directly from Word or Dreamweaver.
  • Video Everywhere: An exciting addition to Blackboard, this will allow you to record, embed and reuse videos from your content editor using your own webcam and put them in the discussion board, blog entries, journals, feedback, wikis, etc.. You'll be able to use this service with your Fordham Google accounts starting in late August.
  • "My Blackboard”: This widget will provide all the Blackboard updates you want for all your classes in one place, including new posts and grades.
  • Item Analysis on Tests: This will allow you to see the effectiveness of particular test/quiz questions for better use in future exams.
  • There will also be general improvements to the Discussion Board, the Navigation Menu, and the Retention Center Early Warning System.  For an overview of the improved functionality of Service Packs 10 and 11, click here.
