Blackboard Learn will be unavailable between 08:00-18:00 on the 9 July. We are taking the system offline in order to implement some developments of the 2013/14 session.

What’s new in Blackboard for 2013/14 ?

Generally, you should be able to find your way around Blackboard and do the same things as you did last year. The main areas which have changed are:

  • More in-depth online help and short video tutorials
  • The information at the “more help” links which give contextual help for the Blackboard page you are looking at
  • The “My Grades” tool which lets you see your course marks and any associated feedback

More general guidance on how you can use Blackboard at Reading is available on the E-Learning Support tab. If you do spot any online help here which conflicts with the new version, please send an e-mail to and we will endeavour to update it, when time allows.
