Blackboard Status Update


Blackboard is stable and we are monitoring the system for continued stability and performance. Maintenance is scheduled for Sunday 9/15, 6am-11am.

Full Description

IT understands the inconvenience for faculty and students alike when Blackboard is unavailable or service is unreliable.  We apologize for the various disruptions Blackboard outages caused on Wednesday, September 4th and Thursday, September 5th. 

Blackboard service is currently stable thanks to creative problem-solving by IT's Engineers and Database Administrators.  Backup and recovery systems are operating normally.  We continue to work with the vendor (Blackboard) to ensure long-term stability of the application.

Blackboard will be unavailable during the IT Monthly Maintenance Window on Sunday, Sep. 15 between the hours of 6:00am and 11:00am.  This outage window had previously been scheduled for maintenance.
