Blackboard at UR

As of Saturday, January 4, 2014, our version of Blackboard is 9.1 Service Pack 13.

Service Pack 13 includes several improvements and new features, including new test options, date management and group management tools, and a student accomplishment feature called Achievements. For a rundown of the new features, see What's New in Service Pack 13?

Please note: Blackboard works best in tested OS/browser configurations.  Find out if you're using a supported browser: Supported Browsers for Blackboard 9.1, SP13.

Unavailable courses that are older than two years will no longer be displayed to faculty. We believe that this will cut down on the number of courses listed and make management of course materials easier. Faculty can request access to older courses (up to 5 years) by sending an email to with the name of the course and the semester it was taught.
