Blackboard 2016 Theme


New Blackboard Look and Feel!

The Learn 2016 theme for Blackboard Learn delivers a more modern user interface using color, fonts, and spacing for greater consistency between Blackboard Learn (computer version) and the Blackboard mobile app. While colors look different, functions and placement of features remain unchanged. Instructors and students can access their course materials using a similar interface whether they're at a desk or on the go!

Added Accessibility for All Users!

The Learn 2016 theme for Blackboard follows standard principles and accessibility guidelines for structure, color contrast, and navigation (WCAG 2.0). The new interface offers greater accessibility to a diverse range of users, including those who use assistive technologies such as screen readers or magnifiers, making navigation more friendly. This means a better learning experience for ALL users!

Learn on the Go!

When users log in to Blackboard Learn on a mobile device or tablet, screen elements such as the course menu and control panel compress or change position so they stay visible. As the screen gets smaller, modules and tool tiles stack so the user still has access to them at their fingertips. The new responsive design elements of the Learn 2016 theme improve the user experience for anyone who wants access to their Blackboard Learn courses on their own schedule and their mobile devices.
