Blackboard summer upgrade on May 8

by Green & Gold News  |   

On Friday, May 8, UA Blackboard will be unavailable between midnight and 4 p.m. If you noticed our longer outage window, this accounts for both our Blackboard upgrade and a server exchange Statewide OIT scheduled to occur immediately before to enhance system performance.

In the upgraded version of Blackboard there are a number of new features and enhancements, listed here: An open file upload warning for Edge browser users, the Course Availability controls in additional places, the Needs Grading filter selection is remembered, there are Grade Center improvements on mobile devices, and the Course Copy performance has been improved. More information regarding the features and enhancements can be found in the Blackboard Q4 2019 release notes.
