Blackboard Upgrade Scheduled to Begin on December 15

Posted on: November 12th, 2015 by Penny Rice

On Tuesday, December 15, 2015, beginning at 12:01 AM CST, IT will begin an upgrade of Blackboard Learn to the latest stable release. During this maintenance, will be offline. We expect Blackboard Learn will be available on Wednesday, December 23. However, we will make every effort to complete this work as quickly as possible and will announce availability once 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 15.  For instructions on downloading your Grade Center data, view the Downloading/Uploading Grades section of the Blackboard Grade Center Tutorial.
