From: Kevin Wolff, Instructional Designer, Baruch Computing and Technology Center (BCTC)

Dear Baruch Faculty and Staff:

We hope that your summer has been going well. As we approach the fall term, we want to update you on the status of the spring 2012 course upgrade to Blackboard 9.1. The CUNY timeline for the upgrade states that the deadline for spring 2012 courses to become available in Blackboard 9.1 was approximately July 31st. However, because the spring 2012 upgrade process is taking longer than expected, CUNY now anticipates that the full migration will be completed by mid-August 2012. If you need to access your spring 2012 course before mid-August and are not finding it in Blackboard 9.1, please contact the Baruch Help Desk (helpdesk@baruch.cuny.edu) and we will work with CUNY to attempt to provide earlier access to the course.

For more information, please visit http://www.cuny.edu/about/administration/offices/CIS/functions/bb/timeline.html.
