As previously announced, Course Studio was discontinued by the software vendor. As a replacement for Course Studio, Blackboard has the same capabilities as Course Studio as well as additional complementary features. Since students are accustomed to using Blackboard, it should be easy for them to work within the platform and find documents.
All courses are automatically listed in Blackboard; just log in to fitnyc.open.suny.edu using your regular FIT username and password and go to “My Courses.”
