As of Summer 2013, NYU has transitioned all schools that had been using the NYU Blackboard service to NYU Classes, the University's new primary learning management system. The NYU Blackboard Service was retired on August 15, 2013. This site provides information on the transition and provides links to valuable training resources for NYU Classes.
Phase 1 is now complete and included selected courses at Washington Square as well as our global sites and campuses. The planning process was overseen by the Teaching Technology Committee and included broad consultation with the University community.
Phase 2 The start of the fall semester brought change to 1000s of users as our project moved into Phase 2. Courses from NYU Abu Dhabi, courses from the College of Dentistry, the Liberal Studies Program, the Silver School of Social Work, NYU Sydney and NYU Washington, DC all now use NYU Classes. Over the summer, the project team moved content for these courses and trained faculty. Now they are actively providing support to ease the transition to the new service.
Phase 3 By the end of Phase 3, NYU Classes will become the University's primary learning management system. Faculty will have access to their Blackboard content to facilitate the creation of their Sakai course sites. As of Fall 2013 the Blackboard service will be retired.
Setup your course sites and learn the basics.
