Scheduled for Wednesday, December 20 between midnight and 7:00 am, SUNY will be updating our Blackboard system. Blackboard will not be available during that time.
The major component that will be updated will be in the Assignment Tool. Croc-o-doc, the system that allows for online grading of assignments, is being replace by Box.
Information on the upgrade can be found here: https://help.blackboard.com/Learn/Instructor/Assignments/Grade_Assignments/Crocodoc_to_New_Box_View There is a summary of the major differences on that page.
This is a good news/bad news sort of upgrade. There will be a few additional features, and there’s a chance that something you liked will be going away.
This is a required upgrade since Croc-o-doc is being de-commissioned and will not be available at all after January 15, 2018.
