Blackboard will be unavailable on Thursday, May 2, during an extended maintenance period which starts at 12:01 a.m. Thursday and ends at 11:59 p.m. If work is completed ahead of schedule, the system will be returned to service and an announcement will be posted on the Information Technology Department's website. This maintenance is necessary to maintain the stability and reliability of Blackboard. During this system update, instructors will not be able to synchronize new materials between Blackboard and Panopto, but you can still log in to Panopto to view video content.
