We’re Migrating EduGarage Content to the Community Site!

Blog Post created by scott.hurrey on Dec 15, 2015

Greetings Developer Community,

 

It’s been a few months since the Developer Community moved to community.blackboard.com. We hope you’re enjoying the collaborative features that this site offers. Between discussions, blogs, ideas, and questions, there are a lot of content types to help you learn from other developers and post your own successes for fellow community members.

 

Now that we’re properly established on the Community site, we are entering the next phase of migration from edugarage.com: moving all developer documentation to this site. Soon you will be able to find all Blackboard Learn developer resources here. This is exciting news, but we also want to give you advance warning: we’re retiring EduGarage.com on Dec 31, 2015, after the migration is complete.

 

We’ll have a few redirects in place from the most common links that people visit, so those links will take you directly to the corresponding section on this site. Jive will continue to serve the community well when it comes to finding, using, and discussing developer information. For a long time, the EduGarage forums were the most active part of the site and we hope that trend continues here. We are still identifying if and how to archive the data in the edugarage forums in how to make them searchable if we do, but all further communication will take place here in the discussions section. We will redirect forums.edugarage.com to the new site, as well.

 

As we move the content in the next few weeks, we’re also updating it for accuracy and usefulness. Please bear with us while some of the content is under construction or if some information is initially moved and then removed (i.e. Powerlinks documentation). We will be tagging everything that is migrated as 'migrated from edugarage' so you know where it came from. If you notice a broken hyperlink or something looks a bit off, let an admin know by leaving a comment or sending a message and we’ll take care of it as soon as possible.

 

If you have any questions, please let us know! We don’t want this to be a surprise, so we’re putting a banner on EduGarage to announce the migration there as well. Please share the news with your networks as appropriate.

 

Thank you for your patience and understanding. I look forward to continuing to build the Developer Community in collaboration with all of you here in Jive!
