Changes to Blackboard Access

August 31, 2023
The Canvas+ Team

With the successful launch of UTSA’s new Canvas Learning Management System (LMS), limited access to the Blackboard LMS will begin on September 1, 2023. All academic courses, including their content, submissions, and data, will be archived in accordance with the required five-year data retention policy.

Additionally, all non-academic course content will be permanently removed from Blackboard on September 8, 2023. Impacted content includes courses designated as sandboxes, development shells, and non-provisioned courses (NPC), as well as organizations. 

What if I have data that needs to be saved?

The division of Academic Innovation will provide you with assistance to save content or migrate it to Canvas.

For assistance, contact the Academic Innovation Help Desk:

We appreciate your understanding and cooperation as we work toward finalizing this transition. This change will help further enhance the teaching and learning experience for faculty and students.
