This is just a friendly reminder to the UMBC campus community of the Blackboard weekly maintenance schedule window from Friday 10 pm to Saturday 1 am. Although this maintenance window is not always utilized, DoIT Staff will now be regularly implementing server updates on the last Friday of each month, starting with August 26, 2011. Reminder notices about the downtime will be posted several days in advance. Blackboard instructors should take note of the weekly maintenance window, and as a general rule, refrain from assigning any work that is due on Blackboard during this time. Similarly students should understand that Blackboard may be unavailable each week from Friday 10 pm - Saturday 1 am.
We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your patience as we maintain these critical systems.
