Tech Bulletin: Emergency Maintenance-Learning System (Blackboard)

Between 10:00 PM and 2:00 AM TONIGHT Friday, November 3rd

Dear Students, Faculty and Staff,

Please be advised that our Learning System (Blackboard) will be undergoing emergency system maintenance between 10:00 PM and 2:00 AM this evening Friday, November 3rd.  


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


This maintenance will be used to correct a critical error with the Blackboard application that is impacting system resources and performance. While we regret the impact of this maintenance at this important time of year, our first priority is to maintain the robust availability of the Blackboard system. 

Tariq Al-idrissi

Associate Vice President, IT
