iLearn is presently on version 9.1.13.

Computing & Communications has performed over the holiday break a Blackboard application version update as well as a database upgrade to our learning management system, iLearn. This upgrade needed to be performed in order to bring iLearn to a supported version, enhance functionality, address some bugs and optimize performance of the system. iLearn is now fully available.

We have moved from Blackboard 9.1 SP 10 to SP 13. Although there were no major changes to iLearn, this version introduces a sleeker interface with some functionality improvements but still maintains the old look of buttons. In the Spring quarter, course sites will reflect the newer text view with no buttons. If the button view is preferred, customization allows an instructor to revert to the button view.
