Scheduled Downtime for Blackboard Learn and Additional Systems

Friday, May 04, 2012

To enhance the Blackboard Learn experience, the Bb server will be undergoing a planned upgrade beginning Monday, May 14 at 3 p.m. and ending Wednesday, May 16 at 11:59 p.m. Bb Learn will be down during this time. This timeframe has been scheduled so as not to interfere with grade submissions, which are due by May 14 at 2 p.m. The upgrade provides a new look and feel for Bb Learn that will improve the experience for students, instructors and administrators. View more info on the new features here.

During this downtime there will also be an Oracle upgrade which will affect the following additional systems: RMS, EZ Lobby, Pinnacle and Admissions Pro. (Please note that these 4 systems should be back up by Tuesday, May 15 at 8 a.m.) ITS will utilize this downtime window to install Oracle patches which further enhance the stability of the database system.
