An Ode To Blackboard


We all recently got an email that on May 30th, Blackboard and Penn will officially NO LONGER be in a relationship. To mark the end of an era, we wrote an ode. (As one does.)

O Blackboard, Sweet Blackboard Thine Purplish tones Thine failure to function On cellular phones,

Thine cluttered design, Those crimson-red tabs, Course documents, syllabus, blog posts to SABS,

We'll miss you O Blackboard, No matter how lame. Canvas looks a bit cleaner, But it's really not the same.
