Blackboard decommissioning: key dates

Blackboard is no longer being used for teaching and learning at the University of Melbourne.

As part of the Blackboard decommissioning process, we have commenced key activities relating to retiring the service, and the early steps of closing access to staff and students.

One of the first key dates to note is Friday 24 July 2020. Apart from a few negotiated exceptions, all Blackboard subjects and communities will be made unavailable to students from 10.00am on Friday 24 July 2020. We will also be removing staff ability to make the subjects available to students again.

More information and support options will be made available on the Project Evolve and LMS website later this month, alongside Blackboard and Canvas announcements. Support options for Students will also be provided by early August.

If you have any questions or require assistance with retrieving content from Blackboard, please submit an enquiry.
