Blackboard Upgrade 2018 – postponed

The upgrade planned for Sunday 19 August has been postponed.

The chosen date would impact students revising for resits and submitting assignments.

A date during the 2018 academic year will be investigated and agreed with all of the Schools and announced in due course.

This post was edited on 8 August 2018 to announce the postponement of the upgrade.

Our annual upgrade will begin on Sunday 19 August 2018.

Blackboard Managed Hosting will start work at 0100 BST, it will take up to fifteen hours to complete. See details for other timezones.

Blackboard will be unavailable during this time; It should be considered at risk until the end of Monday 20 August.

After the work is complete, we’ll be running the latest version of Blackboard Learn – Q2 2018. We’ll post more information about this in the run up to the upgrade.
