About New and Old Blackboard
- Use the New Blackboard - 2015 Fall sign in to enter our new Blackboard Managed Hosting service (Bb-MH).
- Use the Summer 2015 Blackboard Courses link to enter our Locally-Hosted system (CSUStan Bb-Local).
- Blackboard's Managed Hosting service goal is to provide 99+% uptime, with no daily scheduled downtime, as on our locally-hosted system.
- Your day-to-day use on the BbMH system will be the same as on our Locally-Hosted system, plus some new tools and features.
- Faculty can copy content from migrated courses to 2015 Fall courses.
- Summer 2015 courses will remain available on our Locally-Hosted system until Sept. 21 for students. Instructor access is always on.
- Other courses are being migrated to the Managed Hosting service.
- Faculty may migrate course content from Bb-Local to BbMH (750 MB limit).
We recommend Firefox for all Blackboard work.
- If you encounter browser issues, clear your browser's cache.
- Avoid using a custom browser provided by an Internet Service Provider (e.g., AOL, Charter, Comcast).
- Dial-up connections provide slower response than Hi-Speed connections.
- We no longer recommend Google Chrome since it blocks Java applets, resulting in Bb issues.
- Check, install, and update your operating system, browser plugins, and related software.
- Use Firefox.
- Use a computer with a wired connection.
- Read the Test Taking Tips.
- Avoid mobile devices and wireless connections.
Blackboard File Naming Protocol
When uploading files to Blackboard (such as submitting assignments)
- Use only letters, numerals, hyphens, and underscores in the file name.
- Other characters or spaces may corrupt the file and make it unusable.
- Limit the complete file name to 64 characters.
Update - YouTube and VideoEverywhere (Record from Webcam)
YouTube Mashup and Record from Webcam are restored on Bb-MH.
They are not available on our locallly-hosted system.
