As previously announced, ATU’s Learning Management System (LMS), Blackboard Learn, is being moved from our self-hosted servers to Blackboard’s Software as a Service (SaaS) platform, hosted in Amazon Web Services data centers. Go-live on the new system is August 11th. On that day there will be a slight disruption of access to the bblearn.atu.edu website while the switch of their system to our web address takes place. A future announcement will detail the timing.
More information for Faculty on the details of course migrations is available in the Blackboard Resources for Faculty course on BbLearn. Faculty will also receive the information in an email from the course.
This is an exciting time for ATU. This advancement in our educational technology provides many positive effects, such as; a faster, more stable system, enhanced quality, rapid innovation, and an overall improved experience. We feel confident that faculty and students alike will appreciate these changes.
