Welcome to new Blackboard SaaS system for Fall 2017 courses!
(Monday, August 14, 2017)
Welcome to the new Blackboard SaaS Learning Management System for Hood College. This system is hosted in the cloud on the powerful and reliable Amazon Web Services platform. It moves our Blackboard system from our traditional Self-Hosted server environment on campus to a SaaS(Software as a Service) environment. The new Blackboard SaaS system offers many new feature enhancements, while maintaining the same user interface and tools that our community has become accustomed to. The SaaS platform provides Hood with greater access to new features, bug fixes and the high reliability and performance that comes with a cloud hosted system. Please visit the following site for more information on what this new version has to offer and for information on features and settings that have been added: http://hood.libguides.com/iTech
