WebCampus Support Changes Began May 1

On April 30, 2012, the UNLV contract with the third party WebCampus support provider, Blackboard Student Services, ended. The Office of Online Education, who owned this contract, has decided to reinvest in UNLV, and support is now being provided internally. As of May 1, 2012, all WebCampus support is being handled by the IT help desk in the Office of Information Technology, with dedicated WebCampus support specialists on staff. This has meant some important and exciting changes to WebCampus support.
