Planned Maintenance - Blackboard Update Notification: 26 December 2018

Dear campus,
In accordance with the IT Governance and ATDL-approved annual maintenance schedule, the CSUSB Blackboard Support team is providing notification that on Wednesday, December 26th, we will be performing our annual Blackboard update. With this 12 hour-long update many fixes, feature enhancements, and performance enhancements will be implemented and it will require considerable downtime.  The maintenance window has been set for 6:30am to 6:30pm Pacific Time.
While Blackboard may be intermittently accessible throughout the day, continuous and prolonged interruption is expected, and it is recommended that use be avoided during the maintenance window.  ITS chose this date and time from a historically low usage point.  We apologize for any inconvenience this maintenance update will cause.
Date: 26 December 2018
Time: 6:30am to 6:30pm Pacific Time

Thank You,
