Blackboard Upgrade Scheduled to Begin on December 16

Posted on: November 14th, 2014 by

On Tuesday, December 16, beginning at midnight (CST), IT will begin an upgrade of Blackboard Learn to the latest stable 2014 release. During this maintenance, will be offline. We expect Blackboard Learn will be available on Tuesday, December 23. However, we will make every effort to complete this work sooner and will announce availability when the maintenance is complete.

If you are the instructor of a Blackboard course and anticipate that you will need access to your Blackboard Grade Center data during the upgrade period, we advise that you download a copy of your Blackboard Grade Center data to Excel prior to December 16.  For instructions on downloading your Grade Center data, view the Downloading/Uploading Grades section of the Blackboard Grade Center Tutorial.
