Information about Blackboard at UR

Please note: We upgraded Blackboard on 12/28/17. Some users are seeing display issues the first time they access the system, such as inability to re-order content items or Grade Center columns, missing icons, or screen flashing. If you see strange display activity, please clear your browser cache and re-log in. The display should then behave normally. If you're not sure how to clear cache, contact your local tech support or your Blackboard support team.

As of December 28, 2017, our version of Blackboard is 9.1 Q2 2017. UR staff and student users can log in with their NetID at

New features include drag and drop file upload, assignment submission receipts, Needs Grading improvements, and more. For a complete list of changes and links to documentation and videos demonstrating the new features, see "What's New in Blackboard update Q2 2017." 

Check if your browser is compatible with Blackboard 9.1 2017Q2.
