In May 2018, Blackboard Learn was updated to a new cloud-hosted system. The previous Missouri State Blackboard system was self-hosted with servers on campus, but the new Blackboard Software as a Service (SaaS) system is hosted by Blackboard on cloud servers.
All Summer 2017, Fall 2017, and Spring 2018 courses have been migrated to the new SaaS system. Courses older than Summer 2017 will not be migrated and can be accessed on the Bb Legacy site.
All Master Template Courses with “Master” or “MST” in the course ID (not the course name) have been migrated to the new system. Users with Master Courses under another ID can request they be migrated with this form.
Any Blackboard Community/Organization sites that need to be migrated can also be requested with this form.
The New Class Dashboard in My Missouri State
In the new Blackboard SaaS system, instructors choose the classes they want to have a Blackboard course for. Instead of all Banner courses being added to Blackboard automatically, instructors select the courses they want to see in Blackboard by using the Class Dashboard in My Missouri State.
