Final Countdown: End of Blackboard Use @ Touro

We are about 90 days away from the end of Blackboard use at Touro. This means that after June 30, 2019, you will no longer be able to access your Blackboard courses. Although all your course content will be saved by the TCUS IT in a secure location, these files will only be accessed in extreme academic situations (e.g., grade challenges). It is highly recommended that if you would like to save (i.e., export) your course content that you do so as soon as possible.

A series of webinars will be offered via Zoom on how to export and save your content on Mondays (starting April 22-June 3) from 11 AM to 11:15 AM and Tuesdays (starting April 23-June 4) from 7 AM to 7:15 AM. You should register to attend one of these sessions if you would like to learn how to export your course content and save it in a secure location. Registration links have been provided below to register for a Monday or Tuesday session based on your availability.

For on-demand, self-paced options please review the following Blackboard help link:

Finally, we have created short videos that show how to export content from Blackboard and import it into Canvas. They are available at:

If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know. You can view the Blackboard countdown in the TouroOne portal or by going to the TCUS transition website at or the Western Division’s transition website at I look forward to working with you as we take the final step in transitioning from Blackboard to Canvas.
