The DEIT and Academic Technology ad-hoc committee recommendation to adopt Blackboard Learn in AY 2013-14 was approved by the Academic Oversight Committee on October 24, 2012. DEIT will initiate the pilot and migration process in January 2013 and work closely with all departments and academic programs to ensure a smooth transition from ANGEL to Blackboard Learn.
After extended investigations, it seems clear that Blackboard Learn will provide the best options for meeting the needs of DeSales University’s growing distance education audience and for supporting our global learning initiatives and day-to-day administration of academic programs.
If you would like to learn more about Blackboard Learn, please join a Blackboard Open Forum on Monday October 29, 2-3 PM or Wednesday November 7, 2-3 PM in the Air Products Room in Trexler Library and have your questions answered by a Blackboard expert.
