The Blackboard Learn Communication and Adoption Toolkit is a collection of resources that Blackboard recommends using when upgrading to a new version of Blackboard Learn, specifically Blackboard Learn 9.1 April 2014. These tools will help you generate excitement and drive adoption of the new features among your learning community.
