Sakai Update: Blackboard will be gone forever in 30 days
The Duke Sakai Team has completed the migration of Spring 2012 Blackboard courses into Sakai – marking the final migration before the Blackboard shutdown on June 30, 2012 (just 30 days away!).Â We encourage all faculty and staff toÂ check Sakai to make sure they have all the materials they need from Blackboard prior to June 30, 2012. Learn more aboutÂ working with migrated Blackboard content in Sakai.
A few more things to keep in mind:
- Summer courses:Â No new courses or sites are being created in Blackboard.Â Faculty planning on using Sakai this summer canÂ create course sitesÂ and get started now.
- Fall 2012 courses: Faculty can alsoÂ create Fall 2012 course sites nowÂ â provided that the data is already available in STORM.
- Blackboard ORG sites: Though these sitesÂ were already migrated from Blackboard in early February, ORG site owners may want to revisit their old Bb ORG sites and check for any last minute content theyâd like toÂ manually migrate to Sakai.Â If you need help with this process, please contactÂ CITÂ (firstname.lastname@example.org) or drop by anyÂ Sakai Office Hours session.
- Workshops and Office Hours: We’ll be continuing to offer several workshops and drop-in office hours opportunities throughout the summer -Â including a new workshop called âBye Bye Blackboardâ specifically created for those who want to focus on moving their content from Blackboard to Sakai. See our events sectionÂ for aÂ full list of Sakai events and workshops.
