Tech Bulletin: Short Blackboard Outage (Planned)

Wednesday May 11th 7:00am - 8:00am

Dear Staff and Student,

Please be advised that our Learning System (Blackboard) will be undergoing a short system maintenance period between 7:00 AM on Wednesday May 11th  and 8:00 AM on Wednesday May 11th 


For the duration of the outage the Blackboard system will be completely shut down. Users will be unable to access any Blackboard courses, take or submit assessments or post files.


This short outage will be used to install a minor service fix to the Blackboard system related to the cumulative update installed last week. This fix is designed to correct a known issue with the course file system and associated permissions. This update requires a restart of the Blackboard system. Users should not notice any changes to the system at the conclusion of this maintenance.
