Starting 1 September 2019, students and staff will no longer be able to view courses on or download material from Blackboard.
All courses from the 2015-2016, 2016-2017 and 2017-2018 academic years at all UvA faculties will be exported as zip files and stored on a central secure ICTS environment. For each faculty, a select group of users will receive read-only access to this Blackboard archive.
In transferring to Canvas, the UvA decided to phase out the use of Blackboard. September 2018 saw the start of phase 1, in which Blackboard was only available for viewing courses and downloading material. Phase 2 will kick off on 1 September 2019, meaning that Blackboard will no longer be available and that the courses will be archived.
For access to the Blackboard archive, please turn to the Blackboard Course Administrators at your own faculty.
