Blackboard Downtime/Migration over Winter Break

The Academic Innovation and eLearning departments will be migrating the Blackboard system into a hosted environment over the winter break.  This will require extended downtime.

Blackboard will be unavailable beginning  Monday, Dec. 19 at 2 p.m. and we anticipate the system will be fully restored and online by the end of the workday on Monday, Jan. 2. This date is not guaranteed however, we will keep you posted if any additional time will be needed.

Given this lengthy downtime, we strongly encourage you to begin preparing your Spring 2017 course shells as soon as possible. Please contact Andy Miktos, coordinator, learning management systems, if you have any questions.
