Blackboard unavailable 7/15 at 1:00 am

Blackboard will be unavailable for up to 3 hours beginning at 1 am on Friday, July 15 in order to apply a system update. Note that we are referring to the “wee hours” of the morning on Friday, 1 hour after midnight on Thursday.

As you may have noticed, the most recent major Blackboard update back in May introduced a few bugs, the most significant of which is the “floating toolbar” problem that has inconvenienced students taking certain quizzes and exams. The update being applied now is designed to fix this and other bugs. 

Questions? Contact DEIT at or 610-282-1100 x1689.
