Assistant Director - Technology Learning Services
University of Houston-Downtown
I have been a Blackboard admin since 2014. I also used Blackboard briefy while taking undergraduate courses at LSU.
We have two instances of Blackboard at work on our campus. Our main instance for Fall/Spring is self-hosted. Our secondary instance is mainly for Summer & Continuing Education courses.
I'm also a part of this cohort to gain a better understanding about the experience and how it might impact our training efforts in the future.

Associate Director of Instructional Technology
We migrated from Blackboard (WebCT) Vista to Blackboard Learn 9.1 in June 2012. In December 2017 we migrated to SaaS, where we are currently in Flexible Deployment.
My hope is to better understand the Ultra interface, what it will take to get us there, and how best to transition faculty and students to the new interface.

Hi! My name is Heather Crites and I am the Blackboard system administrator at Columbus State Community College in Columbus, Ohio. We have been on Blackboard Learn since we migrated from 7.3 in 2011, but we have been a Blackboard client since 2001. We are currently on SaaS CD. We were planning on enabling Ultra Base Navigation this December, but have decided to delay due to incompatibility with some of our current integrations (e.g. Starfish SSO, Kaltura My Media). I am in this cohort to learn more so we can make more educated decisions. Cheers!
