REMINDER: Blackboard Going Away - June 30
-----------------------------------
Beginning with this summer's e-learning classes, we are moving to a
new learning system for online classes. The new system is integrated
into our campus internet portal, ANTS Connect.

The new system provides much of the same features as Blackboard,
including disussion boards and class rosters and email. It is very
flexible and should provide an excellent learning environment.

Once our contract with Blackboard expires, however, you will not be
able to access old courses. This means that if you have any material
from previous courses that you want to retain and that is not located
elsewhere you will need to move it from Blackboard to your own computer.
The easiest way to do this is to use the Control/C and Control/V
functions to cut and paste the material into your own word processing
system.

If you run in problems with this, please contact Karen Brockney at
kbrockney@ants.edu or 617-964-1100 ext. 225
