Attention Blackboard Faculty

Archival of Blackboard courses

As part of our TTU Blackboard Archival Policy, Blackboard Learn, working in cooperation with the TTU IT Division, eLearning and Academic Partnerships, and the TLPDC, will perform a routine archive of the Fall 2019 through Summer 2020 courses, on Friday, August 19th, 2022.  While the process may take several hours to complete, we do not anticipate any impact on Blackboard services.  At the completion of this archival process, Fall 2019 through Summer 2020 courses offered on the main campus will no longer be accessible in the Blackboard environment.  Classes offered by the School of Law follow a different archival policy that mirrors their academic calendar.  Information regarding restoration of courses can be found within the TTU Blackboard Archival Policy, located here.

Should you experience any issues with Blackboard Learn during this time, please contact IT Help Central at (806) 742-4357 (HELP) or ithelpcentral@ttu.edu.

TTU Transition to Top Hat: Turning Point Solution No Longer Available in Blackboard

As announced to campus last fall and this spring, Texas Tech University has transitioned to a single response ware system, Top Hat, as a result of petitions and concerns raised by the Student Government Association (duplicative systems and charges to students).  Top Hat is now available at no cost to all faculty and students, fully integrated with Blackboard, and can be easily used for attendance, polling, and student engagement.  We worked with faculty to migrate from other platforms, includingTurning  Point, and beginning Friday August 5th, 2022 at 6:00 am, Turning Point will no longer be available in Blackboard.  If you have questions about Top Hat or need assistance, please contact Robert Ward (rob.ward@ttu.edu). For other online learning questions, please contact TTU eLearning (elearning@ttu.edu). Please  monitor TechAnnounce for additional Top Hat preparation and training sessions in the near future.

NCAA Compliance

Compliant with NCAA requirements, athletic academic advisors have "observer" access in Blackboard for their student-athletes. Observer access provides limited view-only course progress and performance information. If you have any questions, please contact the Office of the Provost: eLearning & Academic Partnerships at elearning@ttu.edu.

Regular Maintenance Schedule

The TTU Blackboard Steering Group has reserved Friday morning, 3:00 a.m. to 7:00 a.m., each week for system maintenance on the Blackboard Learning Management System. During these periods, the Blackboard system may be unavailable. Should you experience outages outside of these times, please contact IT Help Central at (806)742-4357 (HELP).
