Blackboard - Urgent Maintenance

Thurs. Aug. 11 11:59 pm to Fri., Aug. 12 8am

Dear Faculty and Students:

Please be advised that our Learning System (Blackboard) will be undergoing urgent maintenance between 11:59 PM on Thursday August 11th and 8:00 AM on Friday August 12th


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.


The update installed last night was successful at installing a new version of Blackboard onto our system. However, due to an unforeseen issue with the new version additional patching is required.  


Thank You,

 Tariq Al-idrissi

Associate Vice President, IT

Trent University
