ATTENTION:

BLACKBOARD

Blackboard and its related systems (Collaborate, Kaltura, Pronto, etc.) will be partially impacted during the transition.  This means that faculty members will NOT be able to access Blackboard from Friday, June 17th at 7:00 p.m. to approximately Monday, June 20th at 8:00 a.m.  However, student access will not be interrupted: students will have full access to Blackboard next weekend even though faculty/instructors will not.

Please plan your Blackboard activities in consideration of the transition and notify your students -- through email and course announcements -- of the special circumstances beginning Friday.

If you have any questions, or if you would like any assistance, please contact the Blackboard Support Team at online@fvtc.edu.

It is recommended that Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox be used as the browser when using Blackboard.  If using Internet Explorer, you may encounter functionality issues.
