Upcoming Blackboard Maintenance and Outages

Blackboard will be unavailable from 3am - 6am on Wednesday, May 28th. During this time, we will be upgrading the application from version 7.1 to version 7.3. Blackboard 7.3 offers some enhancements to the discussion board functionality and addresses some work flow complaints reported by Blackboard Users. A follow-up post will detail these changes.

Blackboard will also be unavailable, along with the majority of the university's IT applications, from 5pm, Friday, May 30th until 8am, Monday, June 2nd. This outage is due to the university's data center renovation taking place that weekend. Applications that will be affected by the renovation include: Blackboard, e-mail, voicemail, the university Web site (http://www.case.edu), Oracle Calendar, ERP and SIS. More information about the outage can be found here.
