Students- Important Information Regarding Your Vista Courses

Posted Apr, 3, 2012

You may have heard that Kent State University is upgrading its online learning management system, Blackboard Vista, to the new Blackboard Learn beginning this fall.  Because of the transition, your submitted assignments, PowerPoint slides, grades and discussions from courses currently taught in Vista will no longer be available by the end of the summer.

We recommend logging into Vista now and saving any old content that you would like to keep for future use.  Many files can be saved in Microsoft Word or PDF format and stored on your computer.

Blackboard Learn, the only available system this fall, will be available via FlashLine’s “Blackboard” icon or by visiting
