The 2015 Blackboard upgrade will commence from 7:30 pm, 12th July (Sunday) to 7:30 am, 13th July (Monday). Blackboard will be unavailable during this period.

This upgrade will provide the annual updates to back-end functionality and security and ensure an even better stability of the system and its components.

Blackboard will be available from 13th July, 7:30 am, but will be deemed ‘at risk’ whilst we verify the functionalities of the upgraded features. This has been decided with the view of minimising disruption and enabling our users to access Learning Edge with the minimal interruption window.

If you have any enquiries relating to this, please email us at [email protected].

Finally, the last date for your diary is the 22nd June, when the LTD team will be undertaking the ‘closed doors’ testing to prepare for the system update and to ensure all the features fulfil their functionality ahead of the live upgrade.

If you have any queries regarding this, please don’t hesitate to contact the Learning Technology Development team on 01695 650754 or via [email protected]
