The eLearning team have provided the following update regarding the Blackboard service login:

ELearning (CAPSL) is currently implementing an enhancement to the Blackboard VLE, Community Engagement.  Community Engagement will offer flexibility to Schools in administration and customisation for eLearning modules.

As a part of the implementation, the College Blackboard Learn login page was changed on 17th June 2014. Feedback from some staff and students has indicated a preference for the original login page.
