There will be no downtime during this maintenance.
Update: The maintenance is complete.
There will be emergency maintenance on Thursday morning starting at 5am PST until 6am PST to install a patch to fix a caching problem. This problem can cause periodic system slowness. No downtime is expected during this maintenance.
The sporadic issue with update notifications is now resolved. Blackboard engineers sent the fix and it was applied this morning. Thank you for your patience.
Please note that we are currently experiencing a sporadic issue where some users are not seeing their updates. This issue appears to occur with only some accounts and we are actively working with Blackboard to isolate the issue and find a resolution. In the interim, one workaround that may work for you is to log out and log back in. We have reports that this has worked for some but not for others. We will update the notice once we have a resolution.
Update: maintenance is now complete.
Please Note: Blackboard will experience a very short down time period ( less than 10 minutes ) starting at around 5:00am PST due to the need for unscheduled maintenance.
