Blackboard announced in late March that ANGEL would be extended as a product “indefinitely”. This announcement, while lacking in many details, impacts our planned migration to Blackboard originally slated to begin in 2013.
We anticipate that further details regarding ongoing ANGEL support and any potential enhancements will emerge after the Blackboard World user conference in mid-July. We also anticipate that the SUNY Learning Network (SLN) will be communicating with Blackboard regarding this announcement, and that SLN will provide further details on ongoing support at the SUNY CIT conference in early June.
Based on the initial information in hand, we will delay our migration to Blackboard until we know more details. We will continue to remain on ANGEL through the 2013-2014 academic year.
We are still on course to upgrade to ANGEL version 8 late summer (see “ANGEL Upgrading to Version 8”).
