In July 2015 the FCC made some significant changes to the Telephone Consumers Protection Act (TCPA). For users of Blackboard's mass notification services this means there may be changes to the way you use our products. Here are some materials that we think will help as you adjust your policies and procedures for usage, as well as provide information about important product changes resulting from the new TCPA regulations.
UPDATE: FCC issues declaratory ruling! On August 4 the FCC released a Declaratory Ruling that provides additional clarity around some aspects of TCPA, and provides some expanded use for educational institutions. Read the official ruling, and read our client brief on the ruling.
