Two-Hour Bb Maintenance Window on June 20

Wednesday, June 11, 2014

On Friday, June 20 from 5:30 – 7:30 a.m. Blackboard will be down for maintenance in order to repair issues that have affected clients at UNCW. In addition to backend fixes, some of the most prominent issues that will be fixed include:

  • Instructors running the de-anonymizer may occasionally be set as the Thread Author in courses they are not enrolled in.

  • Course menu link for Course Name/Home does not respect custom text color setting from Teaching Style.

  • Students see no items within a course if it was just made available.

  • Group assignment feedback file that has attachment with space in filename generates 404 error.

  • Full gradebook export and re-import overwrites gradebook comments.

  • Test images not visible when viewing test results via My Grades.

Our goal is to complete all upgrades, patches and other maintenance as quickly as possible. If you have any questions or need assistance, please contact the TAC at 910-962-HELP (4357) or
