RamCT transition is in progress

February 8, 2012

A message to faculty from Pat Burns, dean of Libraries and VP for IT, on the RamCT transition.

Dear faculty:

The transition to a new version of Learning ManagementSystem (RamCT Blackboard) is currently underway and will be completed to begin the summer semester in May 2012. Fifty faculty and instructors and 2,000 students are now actively engaged in a pilot program this semester to help facilitate the transition.

The new version of the Blackboard product is substantially different from our current version and you are encouraged to begin familiarizing yourself with the system as soon as possible. Resources available to you include:

All RamCT courses from the summer and fall semesters of 2011 have been migrated to the new system allowing instructors to update content and learn how to use the new system. (Access to the new system.) We will migrate this semester's content after this semester completes.

As a reminder, our current version of RamCT will not be used for teaching after this spring semester 2012, but will be available for retrieval of content, finalizing incompletes and/or grade disputes through May 2013.

ACNS is continuing to work diligently with the College RamCT coordinators  to make this transition successful.  Please contact your local coordinator for assistance or send questions to

If you have questions, please let me know.

Pat Burns
