SUNY's contract with Blackboard ends in December of 2022.   D2L Brightspace has been selected as the new digital learning environment (dle) for all SUNY schools.  Stony Brook University is the first school to pilot Brightspace during the Spring 2022 semester.  Students who are taking courses that are using Brightspace will be  notified by their instructors.  If your class is in Brightspace, it will not be available in Blackboard.
