  • Blackboard Preventive Maintenance - Last Saturday of each month (Monday, January 13, 2014)

    In order to keep the Blackboard servers working at optimal capacity, we will be performing a safe rolling re-start of the system at 3 AM CT on the last Saturday of each month.  Note that this will be early on a Saturday morning on a recurring monthly basis.  Although this is not expected to impact our Blackboard services, please exit the Blackboard system for 1 hour at that time, especially if you are taking a test.  Thank you for your cooperation as we work to keep the Blackboard system in peak operating condition.
