Blackboard will be unavailable 4 p.m. Friday, June 29, until 4 p.m. Sunday, July 1.
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 and Grade Center improvements, and resolve some reported bugs in Blackboard. Details about specific changes and new features are available at https://www.ndsu.edu/its/blackboard_upgrade.
When scheduling this upgrade, we took into account which dates would be least disruptive for students and faculty. While the outage is scheduled to last until Sunday afternoon, Blackboard may become available as early as Saturday, June 30.
