Faculty access to Vista will be permanently removed on Friday, June 6th, 2014.

Faculty who still have content in Vista can continue to migrate it to Bb Learn using the “Migrate from Vista” tab in Bb Learn until close of business on Thursday, June 5th, 2014.

    • Migration instructions are available on the “Migrate from Vista” tab on your Bb Learn homepage.
  • Faculty who have questions or need additional support migrating content should contact TLP at x6167.

    Background

    Vista was fully replaced by Bb Learn in fall 2012. Blackboard no longer supports Vista and it must be decommissioned as there are significant security issues and expenses associated with maintaining unsupported software.

    After faculty access is removed, the technical decommissioning process will begin; it will be completed by the end of June at which time Vista will be completely and permanently eliminated from our environment.

    Based on the information provided by the Registrar (dating back to early 2013), the decommission timelines comply with University processes related to grade challenges.

    A complete project timeline dating back to spring 2013 is included below. Click on “thumbnail for larger version.”
