About Illinois Compass and Illinois Compass 2g
The second generation of Illinois Compass made its debut on the Illinois campus in November 2011. CITES will offer both the original Illinois Compass software (powered by Blackboard Vista) and Illinois Compass 2g (powered by Blackboard Learn 9.1) through the end of Fall 2012. Beginning in January 2013, courses in Illinois Compass will become read-only so instructors can access old sites but no longer use the system to teach.
In addition to delivering a redesigned, updated interface, Illinois Compass 2g simplifies the process of creating and editing courses, facilitates classroom collaboration, makes grading easier, streamlines the notification system of course updates, and allows you to customize the course to meet your needs.
This custom installation is hosted by CITES for use by the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
