Blackboard 8 is a legacy system that is no longer accessible effective July 1, 2013.
Bb 8 was utilized until the upgrade to Bb 9.1 at the end of the Summer 2012 semester.
ITS retired the Blackboard Pilot server on July 1, 2013.
This server was used to pilot a handful of courses using Blackboard 9.1 during the Summer 2012 semester. It was also used as a "sandbox" for testing and training on the new system.
