Blackboard Update Notice – 01/08/2015

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.
