This summer, student’s will notice a change in appearance of courses within the Blackboard Learning Management System (LMS). In addition to the color and background modifications, there are a few additional changes to the LMS that have been outlined below.
The Mobile Experience
When a student logs in to Blackboard on a mobile device or tablet the course menu and control panel change position to stay visible.
Smaller screens will alter the view by stacking modules and tool tiles rather than displaying them side by side in the desktop view.
Please note that not all tools and workflows have been optimized for mobile use.
The new theme adheres to the WCAG 2.0 principles and accessibility guidelines for structure, color contrast, and navigation.
There is now a visible keyboard focus which has been built directly into the theme.
Best practices for the definition of buttons and menus used for navigation have been added.
