Links to the Blackboard 9.1  and the Canvas demo servers have been under the ‘Links’ section.

Important information about the Blackboard 9.1 demo site.
1. The site has an invalid SSL certificate.  You will need to tell your browser to trust the the invalid certificate to proceed.
2. The system is a clone of what production looked like in January.

The system is not as fast as it would be in production for two reasons.
1. The underlying database is undersized.
2. Content is coming from Winter Haven.

Please try not to base your impressions on the perceived performance of the system.  Like any Blackboard upgrade, many tools, enhancements , and customization need to be tweaked and that takes time.  Your looking at sausage fresh from the grinder. :-)   Before an actual upgrade these would all be fixed.

If you encounter problems please let us know and we will help diagnose them as 9.1 issues, demo performance issues, upgrade artifacts, or function as design.
