Here are some of the key points:

  • The new ACCS Blackboard instance will contain all JSCC courses in terms 201930 (Spring 2018-19) through 202210 (Fall 2021-2022)
  • The new ACCS Blackboard instance will have the same Ultra Base Navigation and Original Course View that the JSCC Blackboard currently uses
