We are updating Blackboard!

Blackboard will not be available from 17 August, 8 a.m. until 18 August, 8 p.m. due to importatns updates that will bring a number of changes

Dear Students,

We usually update our systems at DOBA during the summer months and this time it's time to refresh the look and feel of the Blackboard virtual learning environment.

We would therefore like to inform you that Blackboard will not be available from 17 August, 8 a.m. until 18 August, 8 p.m.

The updates will bring a number of changes to the way Blackboard looks and feels: an updated navigation menu, an improved notification function for important events/milestones, a reminder for assignments that you need to complete in a course, easier access to grades in a course, and much more. Access will be quicker from the navigation menu.

The updates will also affect the appearance of the Blackboard homepage, and all those courses that you use throughout the academic year will have a special place, as you will now find them under the Organizations option in the Blackboard navigation menu. These courses are:

  • Important Information for Students
  • Technical Information
  • Media Corner
  • Online Exams
  • Career Centre
  • Competence Centre
  • Student Council

You will still find your courses under Courses but in the Blackboard navigation menu, while their appearance and how you work in them will remain unchanged for the time being. 

We believe that the refreshed look of Blackboard will make it easier and clearer to access the information that you need for your studies.

We hope you enjoy these lovely summer days!

Your DOBA team
