Can I still access Blackboard LMS?
As of Semester 2, 2020, Blackboard is no longer being used for teaching and learning at the University of Melbourne. This means that all teaching and learning is taking place in Canvas LMS.
From Monday 7 September 2020, students and staff can no longer access content in previously taught subjects and communities in Blackboard, nor access Blackboard file storage locations.
