Blackboard for Faculty
Blackboard 9.1 is significantly different from earlier versions of the software, both in "look and feel" and functionality. Blackboard 9.1 is the latest major release in Blackboard's Project NG (Next Generation), the merging of Blackboard with its former competitors WebCT and Angel. Project NG will culminate with Blackboard 10.

Are You Using Internet Explorer?
Though it is suggested that faculty use Firefox, Chrome or Safari, if you do use Internet Explorer - please note:
If you have automatic updates from Microsoft and have installed Internet Explorer 10, you will have issues with Blackboard Grade Center. It will display the Grade Center but will not display any column information or information on enrolled students. You can revert back to Internet Explorer 9 from Internet Explorer 10.
