Before the start of the 2021 academic year, Blackboard Collaborate’s hosting will move from Canada to Ireland.
We are finalising the details with Blackboard about the switchover date.
Until you hear otherwise, you should not create Collaborate sessions in advance for the 2021 academic year.
Sessions created prior to the switchover date will be created on the Canadian hosting. They will not be available for people to join when we have switched to hosting in Ireland.
Recordings made prior to switchover will remain on the Canadian hosting. Instructors in Blackboard courses will need to add a new tool to the course to maintain access to them.
We’ll release more details soon.
