Effective Thursday, Aug. 18, Blackboard logins will be available to faculty and staff only. SUNY Oswego courses taught or supplemented with Blackboard will use a new platform called Brightspace for the Fall 2022 semester. Students can login to Brightspace at any time to see their available courses.

Faculty who allow students to finish incomplete summer session courses taught or supplemented with Blackboard can request student access to Blackboard beyond Aug. 17 through the CTS Help Desk.

More information regarding the Blackboard to Brightspace transition, including Zoom office hours and in-person help sessions for faculty, is available from the Digital Learning Environment (DLE) website.
