Welcome to the Blackboard e-Education platform—designed to enable educational innovations everywhere by connecting people and technology.
To NYIT faculty and students,
As of May 30th, Blackboard upgrade has been completed. With the new version. there are two changes from the previous version of Blackboard.
The changes are following:
1. The Java based Collaboration Tools were removed: There were "Collaborate" under Tools which had Whiteboard and Chat functionalities. Due to complex security issues with Java, Blackboard has decided to remove the feature from this version and onward. If anyone needs collaboration tools, you will need to find other collaboration program outside of Blackboard.
2. The YouTube recording feature on the WYSIWYG has been removed: Due to the changes by YouTube to no longer support direct webcam recording, this feature has been changed to only share pre-existing video in your YouTube account. The new icon will allow you to log in so you can share your video via URL. Any video that you want to share will need to be created with another program and loaded into YouTube account first.
If you have any question, please email email@example.com or call 631-348-3317.
