What Content Comes Over From Blackboard?

Blackboard content from summer 2011 through fall 2012 has been automatically moved into NYU Classes. Content from Fall 2012 will be moved in early January. Content from Blackboard course sites older than summer 2011 is available upon request though askits@nyu.edu.

Instructor generated content from three main Blackboard content areas will be moved into the new system:

  • Announcements come over in draft form.
  • Content Areas, such as folders, files, assignments, and external links are all transitioned to your NYU Classes Resources folder.
  • Test & Survey Manager questions, such as essay, fill in the blank, multiple choice, multiple answer, and matching all transition over into NYU Classes
