Blackboard outage planned for Aug 8

Blackboard will be unavailable on August 8, 2010 from 5 a.m. until 3 p.m. This 10-hour outage is needed to upgrade our hardware and database at the off-campus hosted site which will result in improved performance of ELMS.

We understand that an outage of this length can be disruptive to a course, and we apologize for the inconvenience. We have done what we can to minimize the impact to campus and want to give you enough time to make any needed adjustments due to the outage.

This outage coincides with the planned outage of the Primary Data Center on campus scheduled from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. on August 8, 2010. This will affect many campus systems including the ELMS Management tool which will be unavailable during this period.

If you have questions, please contact elms@umd.edu.
