Blackboard Announces New End-of-Life Date for Angel

October 17, 2014

Blackboard will stop supporting the learning management system Angel, which the company acquired in 2009, on Oct. 15, 2016, according to Pennsylvania State University. Blackboard had plans to drop support for Angel in October 2014, but chose in early 2012 to extend support indefinitely. The move means many of the colleges and universities that put plans to upgrade their learning management systems on ice will likely be looking for a new provider. George Kroner, who tracks LMS usage on the Edutechnica blog, estimated about 180 institutions still use Angel.
