System Status

Blackboard is functioning as expected.

Blackboard Tips

The Crocodoc document preview service is considered to be functioning normally as long as the conversions are completed within 36 hours.  The service can only convert a few documents at a time, so when a large number of submissions are made system-wide, a back log is expected.  If a conversion is taking longer than 36 hours, the vendor would consider that submission stuck/failed and recommends the instructor allow a new submission/attempt.  Instructors should note that students are not at fault for these delays and failures, and should not be penalized when it occurs.
