Blackboard Shutoff to Students

​May 8, 2019​

​UF Students,


As a reminder, Blackboard will be unavailable to students starting Tuesday, May 14. We want to keep you in the loop about how to download content you want from your Blackboard courses.​

To prepare, ITS recommends the following considerations:

  • If you have online portfolios from ENGL104, ENGL106, or other courses, consider downloading those portfolios if you don’t have them saved somewhere else. ITS created the following video to help with downloading portfolios and accessing the content:

  • Go back through your courses and download any assignment submissions you want to save, especially if you need these in the future (like for capstone projects).

  • Don’t know what to download? Ask yourself, “If I lost access to Blackboard tomorrow, what would I need from it in order to be successful in my program going forward?” (You may want to ask your advisor).

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to the Help Desk.​
