WebCT is now SacCT
After Blackboard purchased WebCT, WebCT's official name was changed to "Blackboard Learning System - CE Enterprise License." We temporarily kept the name WebCT, but Blackboard is no longer using the name "WebCT". WebCT has a new local name: "SacCT" or Sacramento Course Tools.

This is a cosmetic change; the system is not changing functionally. We will implement this change at the beginning of the fall semester, but both names will appear on some resources throughout the fall semester and we will not change the web address https://online.csus.edu. Help spread the word, WebCT is Now "SacCT."
