Online Learning at SUNY Orange


As a member of the first Migration Cohort, SUNY Orange will be migrating from Blackboard to D2L's Brightspace platform for all courses in Fall of 2022, and a limited number of faculty will pilot the new LMS over the Summer 2022 semester.  These courses will be delivered on Brightspace.

Faculty can sign up for training at the The SUNY DLE Website 

SUNY Orange online and hybrid course offerings are delivered using the Blackboard 9.1 Learning Management System.
In addition, many faculty at SUNY Orange use Blackboard to web-enhance their on-campus courses.

A link to Blackboard's Learning Center has been placed on the "My Institution" page in our Blackboard system.

It is available to students, faculty and staff. The Learning Center has a collection of brief video tutorials on using Blackboard.

There is a special section for students demonstrating how to accomplish the most common tasks in Blackboard.

A link to Blackboard's Student tutorial playlist can be found here: Blackboard Videos for Students
