The Blackboard course management system has been used at the UO since 1999. Most UO courses use it to provide online course materials. Uses range from the syllabus, to course readings, to grade information, to online class discussion and homework submission, to in some cases a fullly online class. We are currently on Bb Learn v. 9.1, SP11. We will upgrade to Bb Learn v9.1, SP13 on Saturday, September 14, 2013.

The University of Oregon is investigating enterprise wide learning management systems (LMS) to support teaching and learning. The UO has been a Blackboard campus since 1999. Since that time, the number of platforms, both licensed and open source, has expanded. Our community is also more experienced in using technology to support instruction, and faculty have new requirements and expectations. The process to determine our requirements, test various products, and select an LMS for the future will take place during 2013-2014. Our current Blackboard license expires in March, 2015. The task force members welcome your input throughout the process. For more information, please see the LMS Review Web site.
