For things having to do with Blackboard.

Welcome Back for Fall 2012!

Welcome back, everyone! As you have no doubt already noticed, this Fall 2012 brings a new website and lots of extra content for you! Feel free to take a look around and see what's new - this quick introduction to the website might give you some ideas!

Here are some of the highlights from our other updates for this semester:

One of the most important changes to note is that Blackboard has been upgraded. Don't worry; it's the same old Blackboard with a new look, quicker navigation, and more grading options. To learn more about some of the new features, please read our New in Blackboard 9.1 Service Pack 8 page. If your students need help, feel free to refer them to our Student Information Guide.

Need help preparing your research posters? We've added a Research Posters page, which includes free poster templates, UK graphics and logos, preparation instructions, and local printing services.

We're constantly adding new videos to YouTube, so check out the UK TechClips channel to stay updated with the latest tutorials and event recordings. You can also find these videos at UKIT on iTunes U.

Finally, if you need account access, a secondary instructor added to a course, or a fresh development shell, we still offer a quick and easy self-service forms for requesting service for Adobe Connect, Blackboard, and TurningPoint ResponseWare!

Thanks for visiting! We want the new site to be as helpful and easy to navigate as possible, so let us know what you think! Give us your feedback by commenting below or by using our Feedback Form.
