System Status

Blackboard is currently operational.

The Turnitin service will be unavailable between 10 AM and 6 PM on Saturday, January 7, while the vendor performs site maintenance.  Please avoid submitting or grading Turnitin assignments during this window.  We apologize on behalf of the vendor for any inconvenience this outage may cause.

WileyPLUS will also be unavailable between 6 AM and 7 AM on Saturday, January 7, while the vendor performs site maintenance.


Please note that Blackboard Support is aware of the Global Navigation Menu issue with Updates being absent for some users.  The vendor confirms this to be a known issue and we are working on the solution. Updates and notifications still remain functional under the My 9.1 Bb tab and the What's New module.  The mobile Blackboard app, Bb Student, can also be used to access this information.  We are sorry for problems this issue may cause.

Blackboard Tips

Instructors:  Remember to make your course available for student viewing.  Here are the steps:

  • Open the course within Blackboard
  • Go to the Control Panel
  • Select Customization
  • Select Properties
  • Change the Available marker to Yes
  • Click Submit
     

Students:  If you do not see your course in Blackboard, it is because your instructor has not yet made it available to you.  Please note:  your instructors have the option to use Blackboard, it is not required, so some of your courses may never appear within Blackboard.
