Blackboard Team Meeting – November 23

Present: Mark Nordblom, Meegan Willi, Eric Kunnen


  • Relay Upgrade – Relay 1 server has been disabled.  Relay 3 link is turned off that points to the old system.  Relay 4 will be out soon and we plan to attend the webinar that is being put on by Techsmith to learn about the new features and strategies for implementation.  Adoption and marketing will coincide with the new version.
  • Bb Drive – There is an executable in the Institutional folder.  This needs to be tested and evaluated.  Also a plan for implementation and marketing.  The plan is to reintroduce the possibilities of the Bb Content System along with the deployment of the drive.
  • Data Center Move – This will occur this friday, the 25th.  There is an announcement in the system to remind end users.  The team plans to evaluate the best way to deliver system downtime notices and information around known issues, etc.  The Important Notices module works well, but there may be additional channels to explore such as Bb Connect.
  • Bb Performance – The system seems to be operating well, Jesse and Mark are working together with Bb support to continue to monitor along with IT Help.
  • Bb Collaborate Pilot – Is on track, we have a meeting with the Bb Inc. team on the 9th of December.
  • Bb Analytics for Learn – The field trial has been approved and the documentation signed.  A meeting will be setup with the Bb Inc. team to discuss implementation.
