Blackboard will be unavailable 4 p.m. Friday, July 14, until 6 p.m. Sunday, July 16.
During that time, we will upgrade Blackboard. The outage also will include the Blackboard Manager site, which is used to create, copy and merge courses in Blackboard.
The upgrade will add new features including drag-and-drop functionality for files and folders, along with assignment submission receipts for students. It also includes fixes for some reported bugs in Blackboard.
Details about specific changes and other new features are available on the ITS Blackboard Upgrade page.
When scheduling the July upgrade, we took into account which dates would be least disruptive for students and faculty. While the outage is scheduled to last until Sunday evening, Blackboard may become available as early as 3 p.m. Saturday, July 15.
