Blackboard Team Meeting – April 5th

In attendance: Garry Brand, Eric Kunnen, Mark Nordblom, Meegan Willi


  • Currently working on getting SP8 up and running.
  • Took the path of a applying a copy of SP6 from test to SP7 hotfix 1 to SP8.
  • Submitted another email to Blackboard today with the log files to find out what is not working.
  • In the future, we’ll go the same route, update to SP7 and then apply SP8.
  • Enrollments and instructor assignments will have to be managed manually. In the past, we’ve run the pilot with snapshot to automatically update enrollments and assignments.
  • Mark will ask Bill if snapshot will work on both production and the pilot servers. This will help us test snapshot and automation before we go live campus-wide with SP8.
  • We need a timeline of how long the pilot will go – will both sets of seven week courses be on the pilot? When will we take production down to upgrade to SP8?
    • Ideally, we would use the first seven weeks for the pilot, and then take the second seven weeks to prep for the update in the Fall.
    • The backup plan is to wait until the second seven weeks to run the pilot.

Paste from Word

  • A building block is required in order to have this functionality in the new VTBE.
  • Is the listserv talking about the old VTBE?
  • Wasn’t the new VTBE supposed to have this as a built in feature?
