On Tuesday, December 17, beginning at 12 Midnight CST, IT will begin an upgrade of Blackboard Learn to Service Pack 13. During this maintenance, blackboard.olemiss.edu will be offline. Since this update will require additional disk maintenance, we expect Blackboard Learn will be available by Tuesday, December 24. 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 17. For instructions on downloading your Grade Center data, view the Downloading/Uploading Grades section of the Blackboard Grade Center Tutorial.
