Blackboard Upgrade FAQs

Further to our intentions to migrate Blackboard over the Christmas period, following discussions with the Vice Chancellor, we have made the difficult decision to postpone this work until 2019. This is due to issues identified during testing of the marking tools on the new platform that would present a risk to staff being able to mark online post migration. Given the importance of the marking tools to the University itís not something we could go live without.

Blackboard, along with other systems, will still be unavailable during the upcoming IT Services maintenance weekend starting Friday 14th December at 16:30 but will be fully available from Monday 17th December where staff will be able to update course materials and mark online without any limitations.
