Attendance Tool Coming to Blackboard
Blackboard will be upgraded to "Bb 9.1 October 2018" on Friday, May 17. Blackboard will be offline on Friday, May 17 beginning at 12:30 a.m. It is expected that the system will be back online by Noon.

The Blackboard Attendance Tool is a new feature whereby you can track attendance at class meetings and automatically turn that data into a score in the Grade Center. This tool relies on manual instructor input. This attendance data is aggregated on an ongoing basis in a single Grade Center column, updated every time the instructor adds the attendance for a new class meeting. Attendance can be marked as Present, Late, Absent or Excused.
