Blackboard unavailable during overnight upgrade 17th - 18th February
(Friday, 5 February 2016)
Blackboard will be unavailable from 20:00 GMT on Wednesday 17th until around 08:00 GMT on Thursday 18th February while an upgrade takes place.
Turnitin will also be unavailable during this period.
This is a fairly minor upgrade, but it does bring some welcome usability enhancements and bug fixes – for instance, after the upgrade Windows 10 users will be able to use the Microsoft Edge browser to access Blackboard.
We have scheduled the upgrade to take place as an overnight process in Enhancement Week so as to minimise disruption. However, apologies for any inconvenience this may still cause.
